I'm not sure what "multi track DAWS" have to do with it. Aux tracks aren't a new thing. I'd be very surprised if you can't create an aux track in your DAW.

The workflow being suggested is very simple once you do it a time or two. You create an aux track and route your guitar track to the aux track. Then you put the reverb on the aux track, set it to 100 wet, then use the aux fader to adjust the amount of reverb you want.

Doing it that way will be a significant improvement to what you're doing now. You'll be able to maintain the attack/transients of original track and still give the piece some big hall distance with reverb on the aux track without losing all the focus and winding up with either a muddiness or a smaller feel than you wanted.
