I am removing a section of drywall and replacing it with some rockboard
(durock, hardibacker, etc.)

second "stud" by attatching it to the existing stud (with fasteners), and
then attaching the rockboard to that new "stud"?
Here's a picture of what I tried to explain:
Seems like it would be a lot easier than trying to cut the existing drywall
down the middle of the stud.
