I could not fully understand this complex question of yours :-))) but:

The best results you get is from GND plane. This way you get the return
current flowing right under the trace in opposite directions to the GND
pin of the driver-IC.

If not, the GND grid will work (for not very high frequencies).

There are two rules:

1. Make the grid as dense as possible (though one IC per cell will do)
2. De-couple every corner of every cell. This way the return current
will have the shortest possible return paths, jumping through the
de-coupling caps.
