What do you mean by saying some parameters are "equal for all
datasets"? If a parameter is different for a different dataset, it is
a different parameter, not the same one.

In which way do you want to make use of your knowledge, that ... are
"equal for all the datasets"?

Do you want

on the one hand: a common name for accessing a set of parameters, each
applying to a different dataset,

and on the other hand: a name for accessing a parameter applying to
all datasets?

Then there is something in the 'optim' package you could use.

Or do you mean that certain parameters affect all datasets, and
certain parameters affect only one dataset each? But this is not how
you explained it.

Or what else?
