I don't follow.

Essentially, we just want to print out
Adding Ambits Per Voice

instead of

right?  Why would the formatting be different in the Snippet
document than in the manuals?  Just make it
or something like that.

IIRC you can't use macros like that in texinfo.  I mean, you
can't do

@macro lilyheader{FILENAME}
@end macro

which is essentially what this proposal boils down to, right?  I
spent ages trying to do this for the section headers.  :(
If you /can/ do this, possibly by modifying lilypond-book and/or
texinfo, that would be awesome.
