comment Macro with local variables expanding over several tab-points
I updated the question to add a more complicated example showing desired effect. See also comment to David's answer.

comment Macro with local variables expanding over several tab-points
My current actual macro is working with \begingroup, \endgroup, as there are too many variables that might be touched and need to be reseted for the next call. I've upvoted your answer and updated (and complicated) the request.

Updating the question, a less simplistic example showing desired effect.

comment Macro with local variables expanding over several tab-points
This solves part of the problem: having \tempii preserved inside \mymacro over the cells. But then \tempii is also redefine outside \mymacro which is not desired. This example was probably too simple to show that part of the intended effect.

btw. @egreg, I would like to upvote separately these two different answers, although I don't know if tex.sx has an specific policy for two or more answers from the same author in the same question.

comment Using the correct amount of space around unit symbols
@JosephWright there was a reason I derived \uspace from \xspace instead to using it. Retested in my example and it solves none of the issues I still have, while it eliminates what I tried and succeeded to achieve.

comment Using the correct amount of space around unit symbols
@JosephWright I indeed recognize that my \uspace command was a rip of \xspace and it behaves nicely when using single units inside text (or math mode) just after a number. It does not work as well when mentioning units in isolation or composing units.

comment Using the correct amount of space around unit symbols
@Johannes_B the document was printed and posted in a wall, however I think it might be this one here: gemini.udistrital.edu.co/comunidad/grupos/gispud/RAIZDC/… (pages enumerated 1 to 7) I don't find, however, the part of separating units from punctuation.

comment Defining a macro with three optional arguments in the form \newmacro{a}{b}[c]{d}[e][f] and \newmacro{a}{b}[c]{d}*[f]
In a couple of months I will not remember the name of the keys or its exact orthography (sometimes). And having to type name= for something that always be there..., but this is a matter of personal preferences.

I can actually see one use for the extra starred version: when you want to allow both the standard functional notation and the alternative notation: f(x)=2x:=x+x

comment Defining a macro with three optional arguments in the form \newmacro{a}{b}[c]{d}[e][f] and \newmacro{a}{b}[c]{d}*[f]
I'm not sure if I like the key-value approach for this particular project. I rather go for typing shortcuts than for readability. But I appreciate the beauty (and the example) of the key-value. A mixed approach such as \funcdef[codomain=\mathbb N,definition=\rfloor{x}\lfloor]{f}{x}{\mathbb R} might be what I'll end up to.

@daleif would my declaration be simplified to \DeclareDocumentCommand\funcdef{mmomsoo}{...} ?

comment Special characters in graphics filenames
@DavidCarlisle, the \@percentchar works. I also declared a macro without @ si I didn't have to put \makeatletter \makeatother each time, however: Isn't there a macro already without @?
