"Divide ut Regnes" is the operational Code Name for the attempt to capture Zelle, and means "divide and rule"."

No, it doesn't. "Ut" is closer in meaning to "so that" or "in order to", and "impera" does not mean conquer. It means rule—in fact, it is a command or instruction to rule (second-person singular active imperative). Remember Caesar's famous phrase? Veni, vidi, vici. "Vici" means "I conquered". "Divide et vince" would be an instruction to "divide and conquer".

Divide et impera means "divide and rule/order/command". "Divide ut Regnes" means "divide so that [you] govern/rule/reign".

Because if I did it without discussing it, someone would change it back.

Not if you leave a valid edit reason.
