some ballads like nights in white satin or november rain have unconventional forms with long bridge and instrumental sections.

If you're into GnR ballads, listen to some Elton John. I believe Axl held him in high regard, and some of his songs(written by Bernie Taupin) are great examples of ballads.

rock ballards can be pretty free form, and often have long bridges and instrumental sections.

a simple way to do verses is to have few instruments, quite quietly and undistorted playing arpeggiated chords, maybe just an acoustic or piano. then when it comes to the chorus kick in a distorted guitar, double or triple tracked (les paul/marshall style tone) Playing some power chords that are held for a bar or half a bar each.
