Working on several mss calling for increasing TeX sophistication - so learning ...

I tend to try to answer my own questions myself (often with ugly hacks!) so don't ask many here. As an answerer I'm better at do-it-outside-TeX and at helping newbies with easy questions than at competing with the wizards. I've used but never written a macro that needed \makeatletter.

Consider writing an awk (or perl or python) script to expand those three macros in your source. Then just go ahead with new changes.

comment A templating system in LaTeX
If you post an example showing in more detail what you want you're more likely to get a useful answer. Can you write a TeX document in which you indicate which "variables" should be variable? Some indication of your workflow would be helpful too.

comment Formatting and bullet points
You're getting there. This document compiles correctly and does not show the formatting error if I comment out the \usetheme{I6pd2}. I don't have that theme's source. Googling for I6pd2 yields some links that might help you. So might someone else on this site, now that you've provided enough context.

A MWE is a compilable document (or one that almost compiles, with just the error that needs fixing). It should start with a document class, use only the necessary packages and then provide minimal code between \begin{document} and \end{document}. That will help us zero in on your problem. See meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/…

That code is a little help - but what we really need is a complete MWE (minimum (non)working example) - the shortest compilable document that illustrates the problem. PS I used indentation to format your embedded code.
