I would like to create a lightning component with a datatable that allows for searching and selectable rows.

Since the library provides the component code for the searchable datatable separate from the component code for the selectable row datatable, how can I combine the functionality / code?  would i create two methods in the .JS controller?  or would I create the two components separately adn then include them in the same app?  My goal is to have a datatable for a custom object (activity_Code__c) so that the user can

1. search for the records (activity codes) they need 
2. take these selections and use them to create another custom object (labor_efficiency_line_Item__c). . 

so the action would not be 'delete' or 'view details' as in the component example code, but rather I would need to take the IDs from the rows selected and use them to generate a new custom object for each selected code (I am thinking I would need to do that in the apex controller - but not sure..)  any suggestions are appreciated!
