What _exactly_ do you have in mind? :-)

That could be done with Insert -> Frame (german version: Rahmen).
Then define the desired border width for the frame and how it
should flow in the text (anchor at paragraph or as a character;
flow parallel). Put the formula into the frame.

Again, LaTeX would simply require putting a \fbox{...} (frame
box) around the math expression. :-)
