Now a Federation Marine Corps might be possible, and would typically operate outside the Starfleet command structure. Their officers would likely be recruited from those who complete advanced Federation tactical or security training.

In deep space nine we saw evidence of Federation soldiers. They had a different uniform, so they were not Starfleet. But there is canon proof that a Federation ground fighting force existed in the 24th century.

So the OP's idea is at least valid in terms of adopting rank insignia...
