I want to design a model for a distributed database solution.
- Are there appropriate tools and approaches?
- How to include stereotypes for (horizontal) fragments?

If you are looking for data models to start with, I'd recommend you take a look at: http://www.databaseanswers.org/data_models/index.htm
This is the most comprehensive list of data model examples that I found so far. In fact I have used some samples as starting point for some of my projects. These models won't show you how to take horizontal fragmentation into consideration, though.
You may consider these basic techniques for horizontal fragmentation*:
