I will give Eric’s suggestion a go.

Hi there,

In my group, we typically response to reviewers comments (in latex) by first defining the  following command in the header

then marking up the text as follows

\response{red text}

I try to do the same in org,  i.e., putting
then \response{BLAH BLAH} in the text. The only snag is that on export I get \response\{BLAH BLAH\}

Easiest solution is @@latex:\response{blah blah}@@ but that will lose you
all the org formatting.  Longer solution is to use environments, such as

blah blah blah

and define a "response" LaTeX environment, along these lines:

#+latex_header: \makeatletter\newenvironment{response}{\textcolor{red}}{}\makeatother


Notice also that commands and environments in LaTeX are not
interchangeable; there are things only commands can do and things only
environments can do.  (Well, not really - technically, I guess,
environments are strictly more powerful than commands, though I'm not
100% sure - but some things are quite difficult to do with environments
and trivial with commands.)
