How to add an installed Package to a page layout

Hello I recently installed a Managed Package called "Marketing Calendar Free" and i want to add it either to the Home Page as a component or to the Campaign Object (or even to a campaign record). 
What i don't want want is to have it as another object as it will involve a lot of clicks for the user.

When i click on "Edit Page" to the Home Page i do not see "Marketing Calendar". How can i add it to a page layout?

Also - Can i also create a Quick Action to open the Calendar (managed package)

As per the SFDC ISV packaging guide https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.packagingGuide.meta/packagingGuide/packaging_packageable_components.htm you cannot update the page layouts. The page layouts are not up-gradable and hence only way you can launch a new layout is to create another page layout and probably deprecate the older one.
