Links (or macros) are a good user-level solution to solve certain

the best solution for multilingual chunks of text inside paragraphs.
Maybe some kind of inline `quote' block?

My personal impression is that lightweight Org markup is suitable for simple documents. Problems grow as a snowball as soon as a document becomes more complex. If syntax were extended too much, Org would loose its simplicity that is one of its advantage. Complex documents require more strict and flexible thus more verbose markup format.

It seems, your have tried all possible variants for inline quotes
macros, src_org{}, even links and nothing is perfect
Code for any approach may be polished to some extent, but some limitations will remain.
