Unfortunatly it needs some wild guessing when trying to understand what
you try to achieve, so the follwing might be off topic. Probably
ExpressionCell is what you are looking for, e.g.:

ExpressionCell[(x + 1)^a/(1 + y)^2]

Cell is the low level version, which needs some extra effort to create a
correctly formatted cell in the notebook. This would be one way to
create a cell with a formatted formula within it:

CellPrint[Cell[BoxData[ToBoxes[(x + 1)^a/(1 + y)^2]], "Output"]]
