If you can use TikZ/PGF version 3 pics are very close to what you are asking for (section 18 of manual)

comment Creating a \newcommand for a tikz diagram
@LK512 if you are mainly worried about setting styles at the start you can have a look in the manual how to define your own that can be used as a shortcut, just as in my diagram/.style={...your styles...}

comment Creating a \newcommand for a tikz diagram
I think it is a bad idea to pass the entire tikz code as an argument. What about using \newenvironment{diagram} instead of a macro?

comment How can I make comments inside an equation?
Do you mean insert some explanatory text in the typeset output or in the source code? You may be looking for \text{..} or \intertext{..} used in conjunction with the align environment?

comment Redefine font used in \mathit
@egreg yes I see why mixing the two styles in a formula is dreadful. What I was aiming for was using symbols (e.g. \to, =, \subseteq...) and as variables only \V{...} names. If I use CM only then I get a suboptimal mix of fonts when I mention \V names in the main text...but I do not like libertine as a math font for its thickness and kerning...
