If there is a better alternative to silicone that allows for easy removal without damaging the wood, please also let me know!

Silicone is good for glass and metal. It doesn't doesn't last long on wood and plastic.

Try gorilla epoxy glue or pond expanding foam for wood against glass. Superglue gel might work for wood against wood. It's best if the wood were dry and left to cure for all these glues.

Will it last long enough for the wood to become water logged?

Can wood be separated from PEF without damage? I assume that's not the case with GEG and SG.

maybe if you're careful. A little sanding on the wood to remove the glues would work.

I used superglue gel, with pre filter stuffing , also glued aquarium shape magnets to the wood.
