It expects the symbol of a function returning a file name.  You
cannot throw random garbage at it.

"%t" is used in strings which are parsed by `TeX-command-expand' and
the related machinery.  It has no meaning outside of such context.

Sorry, I don't understand what you want to do with that function.  It
returns the name of an output buffer, i.e. the buffer the active
process writes its output to.  That has barely anything to do with
invoking a command on the document, a buffer or a region.

The way to go is to call `TeX-command' with `TeX-master-file' or
`TeX-region-file' symbols depending on what you want to achieve.  You
could do this with several independent functions with different key
bindings or you could use one function with one key binding and
different prefixes.
