Just to be sure I understand, you would like to define somewhere in the 
grammar how e.g. an identifier looks (regex) and then in other patterns, 
say a function prototype, be able to insert this definition (in the full 
regex for the function prototype)?

If so, have a look at this proposal: 
https://github.com/textmate/textmate/pull/1276#issuecomment-63450941 and 
let me know if that fits your needs.
