I'm not sure to understand.  But maybe C-SPC C-SPC might help: it
activates `transient-mark-mode' temporarily.

,----[ set-mark-command ]
| C-SPC runs the command set-mark-command
|   which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `simple.el'.
| It is bound to C-@, C-SPC.
| (set-mark-command arg)
| 
| Set the mark where point is, or jump to the mark.
| Setting the mark also alters the region, which is the text
| between point and mark; this is the closest equivalent in
| Emacs to what some editors call the "selection".
| 
| With no prefix argument, set the mark at point, and push the
| old mark position on local mark ring.  Also push the old mark on
| global mark ring, if the previous mark was set in another buffer.
| 
| Immediately repeating this command activates `transient-mark-mode' 
temporarily.
