I have got a custom masterpage which I have generated from html.(Sharepoint 2016)

It made the conversion nicely and works ok.

But it still shows the the top suite bar, So I could not find a way to customize the top suite bar as it is rendered in ms-designer-ribbon div which I do not have any control in.

So, I have decided to hide hole top bar and create my own which I can style and customize easily.

But I need the menu items(cog and user name menu) in my custom top bar. But I am not sure how I am going to add those controls to my own top suite bar.

I had a look at snippet gallery, but nothing is there to achieve this.

Could anyone help me on this?
