Because I would like to add text paragraphs in between. The database
schema example was just a simplified example. I have an unknown number
of "groups" in my original datasource and I have some "common"
information for each group which would need to be put in front of the
"details" table which is then the "rows" of the group entries.

Would it be possible to have sub-reports and a parametrized dataset to
achieve something like this (I'm a BIRT beginner, so I'm not sure what
features overall BIRT has to offer for particular problems. I don't even
know if there exist parametrized datasets and if there is a possiblity
to loop over a parameter list and execute sub-reports for each list entry).
