I don't understand your problem. Just tell Fluent it is a wall. No?

Re: when to define the boundary of interior
 
It depends exactly what you want to do. You can set up an "artifical" boundary. If using Gambit, set the plane as an interior. When you see this in Fluent, this plane is in the boundary conditions but it does not affect the results, i.e. You can read values from this plane but the slution acts as if this plane was not there. However if you want this "wall" to have conductive properties etc...I think you set as wall. I dont know how to set up the conductive properties etc.
