I think it could be put in where the flexible hose from the tank

Yes. I have the extend-a-flow. If you get one there are two things you want to be sure of:
1) Get the one with the Acme (OPD) threaded connectors.
2) Get the one with a right angle. The straight one won't fit under the tank covers.
This works for me and I have, I think, a 12' hose with it that can reach to the pickup tailgate. I also have a portable folding table I use to hold up the grill, which is a tabletop model. Or it can go on the ground.
One thing to watch is that liquid propane can accumulate in the line if you leave it hooked up overnight, because the line temperature will be lower than the tank temperature. This can cause all kinds of problems if you run the grill the next day -- regulator frosting up and all kinds of things. So you want to disconnect it whenever you're done with it.
Be careful storing the high pressure line as it has a fair amount of propane in it. I make it a point to run the grill until it runs out before storing.
