Passing variables into a macro? (Similar to the way #task works)

I'm trying to make a WPF .NET application that can run a few macros that I have that rely on for a heavily GUI guided workflow. I would like to pass some variables that the application generates for me into either precompiled macros or running the macro code from text files. Effectively it will work exactly the same way #task functions but with a GUI that builds up the variables for a very company specific GUI driven solution.

 

Does #task temporarily compile the macro using the text file and user variables or does it just take the code and run it through the application? Anyone know the best strategy for this? The idea is not to build the execution logic into the application, but just use it for variable building.
