If I read this right, what you want is a copy of the wiki-code from the
included page, which you can paste into a new page and edit without
changing the original.
Easiest way to do this is:
1. Open the new page for editing.
2. In a new window / tab open the original page and add ?action=source
to the URL. This brings up the wiki-code for that page.
3. Copy and paste this wiki-code into the new page and edit as usual.
Hope this helps!
