Make a bash script (or whatever else) doing what you want (the
pseudo-code you posted). Save it as /usr/local/bin/foo and create a
unit file with ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/foo.

That said, there probably is a better way to solve your problem not
involving macros or scripts (at least in my experience it always is).
But that would obviously depend on exactly what you are trying to do.
