Usually, this is done by programming correctly my-template-generator:

(defun my-template-generator (funame)
   (interactive "sFunction name: ")
   (insert "/*\n"
           "********************\n"
           "* "funame"\n"
           "********************\n"
           "*/\n"
           "void "funame"()\n"
           "{\n"
           "    \n"
           "}//"funame"\n\n"))
