What is this frame and how to move it?

http://h9.abload.de/img/wowscrnshot_020812_1890zb9.jpg

"Intercept Twilight Barrage to prevent damage to the Skyfire!"

Which frame is this and how do I move it without using another addon (like inserting a line into another addon).

I googled a it and found this thread:
http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=16601

Looks to me like this is the bossemote frame, am I right? And if so i have to write in the addon this line:

Code:
/script RaidBossEmoteFrame:ClearAllPoints() RaidBossEmoteFrame:SetPoint("CENTER", UIParent, "CENTER", X, Y)
Am I right? Wrong Frame? Any way to "attach" this frame to e.g. the raidwarning frame (for my needs it should be above it.

Also any way to make me see this frame without using addons like moveanything?

Also anyway to set the number of lines this frame can use?

Thanks for your help! Cheers!

Code:
RaidBossEmoteFrame:ClearAllPoints()
RaidBossEmoteFrame:SetPoint("BOTTOM", RaidWarningFrame, "TOP", 0, 10)
But, keep in mind that the UIErrorsFrame is above the RaidWarningFrame by default, so you may see some overlap unless you move that too.

Alternatively, you could just redirect the messages to the RaidWarningFrame:

Code:
local add = RaidNotice_AddMessage
RaidNotice_AddMessage = function(frame, ...)
    if frame == RaidBossEmoteFrame then
        return add(RaidWarningFrame, ...)
    else
        return add(frame, ...)
    end
end

Change all instances of "RaidWarning_AddMessage" to "RaidNotice_AddMessage". I edited the code in my previous post as well.
