In the Minhag Rheinus, we have piyutim which are added by ma'ariv and shacharit on yom tov, as well as on certain Shabbatot. While I am aware of the position of some of them (Yotzer, Ofan, Zulat, kerovot) I am unaware of the actual position certain of the others, namely the ones by Ma'ariv and the Ahavah (the only fromm schul in my area being a Chabad). Is there a chart anywhere which lists the positions of the remaining piyutim?

By "position", do you mean to ask precisely where within the b'racha it's inserted? –  msh210 Jul 14 at 6:29
    
Which siddurim/machzorim have you checked? Which piyutim do you mean? Anything that can be checked in the Rudelheim or Goldschmidt? –  Matt Jul 14 at 11:47
    
@msh210, yes, for example, should an ahavah go before or after baruch yotzer hameorot; if before between which pasukim –  Noach mi Frankfurt Jul 14 at 13:27
    
@Matt, I own only two of the 5 volumes of shalosh regalim machzorim, a Rödelheim for Shmini Atzeret/Simchat Torah, and a Sulzbach for Shavuot. Due to their advanced ages (over 140 years) and low-quality paper, I am always uncomfortable leafing through them. –  Noach mi Frankfurt Jul 14 at 13:30

In Ashkenaz today [the situation was different in different communities in the past]:

  • Me'ora - Before or chodosh.
  • Ahava - different minhogim, either before v'keiravtanu or before l'hodos lecho.
  • Maarivim
    • Short piyut before end of first berocho,
    • Same with second;
      • long piyut before בגילה ברינה בשמחה רבה ואמרו כלם,
      • short piyut before זה צור ישענו פצו פה ואמרו [insted of זה א-לי ענו ואמרו],
    • short piyut before end of that berocho,
    • and short or long piyut before the end of השכיבנו.

Welcome to Mi Yodeya! The question was asking for the existence of a chart. Also, in general, providing sources improves the value of answers here, since I'm sure you're great but none of us know you. –  YeZ Aug 19 at 22:17
    
They are called Ma'arovos. Also, who puts an Ahavoh before l'hodos lecho? –  Joshua Pearl Sep 11 at 17:50
