comment Perl, Python, Lua or just Latex/Xetex
Do you just want to learn (La)TeX? Then read Knuth A or TeX by Topic (free). Try to write some simple macros using these books. I can't see what Perl or Python has to do in this respect.

comment How to compile .tex file to a pdf using luajittex engine?
luajittex --fmt=lualatex test.tex works for me in the sense that there is a resulting PDF. My installation keeps on regenerating the format file, I don't know why.

@wipet David told me that your answer is better than his answer, but he also told me that I should not tell you. So ignore my comment from now and accept the fact that some uniDentified Person Came here and suggested me to use your answer.

That's cool. I don't understand it yet, but less \aftergroups than David's solutions

OK, trivial then. I understand ;) (No, I think I understand why the many \aftergroup, but I would not have found out about the extra group the color package adds).

Looks much better, but it doesn't work with my real document.... ! Missing \endgroup inserted. <inserted text> \endgroup . I am not too keen on reducing the problem right now.

@Bernard no... The problem is, that I have a medium complex document class with already predefined headers and footers. I don't want to add another layer of complexity on top of it, so I wanted to have a solution based on the LaTeX's commands for headers.

Looks great, thanks. This reminds me that I have more requirements. See the edit of the question (sorry about that).
