I have no idea what you mean, but I'll try to make things clear.
In order for you to attach a spell to a dude, that dude must be unbooted and in a location you control. Call it a restriction, a requirement, or whatever.
In order to attach a Totem to a location, you need to control that location and have an unbooted Shaman there.
Now, there is a rule that says card effects can attach goods and spells to dudes, even if they are booted and in uncontrolled locations. This rule does not cover attaching anything to deeds.
General Store can attach spells to a booted shaman in town square.
General Store cannot attach Totems to locations that you don't control, or where you don't have an unbooted shaman.
General Store cannot attach Legal Instruments to a booted deed, or an out-of-town deed, or a deed that you don't control.
And neither can Idol of Whatever .
