Thank you for your detailed answer, Xypron.

The solution does not yet exactly meet my requirements. I will try to describe
these more precisely.

What I am aiming for is a way to reassign the indexes of an expression that is
part of a given parameter definition that I can not modify as whole but just the
expression within the definition.

For example, if the following parameter definition is given:

param result {a1 in A, a2 in A} :
    v[a1, a2] * (x[a2, a1] + y[a2, a1]);

I only am able to replace the expression

(x[a2, a1] + y[a1, a2])

with something (that could look like "(x[a2, a1] + y[a1, a2])[a1,a2]").

Particularly it is not possible to add another parameter definition (which could
be referenced instead of the expression) before this parameter definition. 
(The reason for this constraint is the process that generates the parameter
definitions of my model.)

So this replacement I am looking for could by called an amalgam of an inline
parameter definition and a parameter reference.

Do you - does anybody - see a solution to this requirement?

Kind regards,
