<referenceContainer name="sidebar.additional">
   <block class="Partsoto\CategoryCustom\Block\Search" name="category.custom.replacement.search" before="-"  template="Partsoto_CategoryCustom::replacement_sidebar.phtml"/>

You have to create a module/extension for your requirement.

In magento2, the best way to remove a container that via layout

<referenceContainer name="{Containername}" remove="true"/>

So, lets create a handle which will create a layout handler like default.xml catalog_product_view.xml,catalog_product_view.xml etc using event layout_load_before (Event/Observer).

Using that custom handle files remove the sidebar.additional

In your case, create a handle which will only create when you have a query ?code=AAA and the query param code is not equal AAA.

Create events.xml at app/code/{VendorName}/{ModuleName}/etc/frontend/

and code like:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Event/etc/events.xsd">
    <event name="layout_load_before">
        <observer name="renerate_custom_handle" instance="{VendorName}\{ModuleName}\Observer\CreateNewHandler" />

Observer file CreateNewHandler.php should be located at app/code/{VendorName}/{ModuleName}/Observer

namespace {VendorName}\{ModuleName}\Observer;

use Magento\Framework\Event\Observer;
use Magento\Framework\Event\ObserverInterface;

class CreateNewHandler implements  ObserverInterface

     * @param Observer $observer
     * @return void
    public function execute(Observer $observer)
        $layout = $observer->getLayout();

       $lets= (isset($_GET['code'])&& $_GET['code'] !='AAA' && strlen($_GET['code'])> 0 )
        ?'sidebar_remove_brand': null ;
        if($lets != null){

        return $this;

Last create a layout file sidebar_remove_brand.xml at app/code/{VendorName}/{ModuleName}/view/frontend/layout

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <referenceContainer name="footer-container" remove="true"/>
    <referenceContainer name="sidebar.additional" remove="false" />
