I didn't have a quick application like yours to test since haven't used beam settings but I was just trying to help you understand how variables work so you could create your 'posBeam' (or whatever you want to call it) definition from the padText example.
```
A quick attempt (completely untested) would be

posBeam = #(define-music-function (parser location num1 num2) (number?
number?)
#{
\once \override Beam #'position = #'( \$num1 . \$num2 )
#})

Without testing I don't know whether you would apply it as:

\posBeam #3 #2
or
\posBeam ( #3 . #2 )
or something different.
