At last you say how you want to control the whole thing.  (I suppose
with "auctex-context-menu" you mean the Command menu.)

Well, you may have noticed that your command is picking up the the
selected option if invoked from the menu.  So you could abuse the
function used when calling a command from the menu.  That means
(TeX-command-menu "Texify")
should do what you want.

Yes, but you still cannot use it as a variable, symbol or function.

Probably, but that won't give you `TeX-command-buffer' functionality.
