@Robert Your hint is exactly the answer to the question. Would you write an answer on the site please?

@cfr If you have a workable solution please provide an answer with an example which I can try.

comment hyperref: how to format text in a forms text-field
btw, the application I'm thinking about is producing "advertisement sheets" as preformatted PDF where only the "price tag" needs to be typed in before printing.

comment hyperref: how to format text in a forms text-field
@cfr Exactly. Obviously, a font would need to be completely embedded to be used in a form field. Answers in Adobe forums tell that much. I know how to get pdftex to completely embed a font. Alas, so far no success to actually get that font to be used in a form field. Maybe an encoding problem? So the question really is how to use an embedded font in a Text Field reliably.

Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format.

Maybe TikZ \foreach defines a group? In this case the definition would be local to the body of \foreach.

comment How do you define a command to select nested groups?
@FK82 Of course you're free to construct lists any way you want. Experience suggests though that it'll be easiest when either following the TeX or the LISP convention ;-)

Note that a LISP list is also constructed from a binary operator, see S-expression.

Also, a pair would typically look like \do@pair{<tokens1>}{<tokens2>}

comment How do you define a command to select nested groups?
In general, the typical list implementation in TeX looks something like \do@item{<tokens1>}\do@item{<tokens2>}

comment How can I create lambda expressions?
@Manuel This would mean that \the\numexpr\LambdaFunction{2}{#1+#2}{5}{7}\relax would give 12.

@Marko Could you post that as an answer?

comment How can I create lambda expressions?
I have the feeling this is of limited use, because in TeX a "functional" programming style requires expandability. If you would modify your question to request an expandable \LambdaFunction, I would set a huge bounty :-) But my gut says it is impossible in TeX.
