To select a custom region as you describe you need a clip mask. The area you want to apply effects to should be opaque and the remaining area transparent. Use the -clip option to apply the clip mask followed by your effect.

The convert command accepts the -clip option. See http://www.cit.gu.edu.au/~anthony/graphics/imagick6 for additional help.
