Re: define a keybinding for "find next alternate definition of last tag

You can let Emacs define stuff for you.

    (fset 'find-alt-tag
       (lambda (&optional arg) "Keyboard macro." (interactive "p") 
         (kmacro-exec-ring-item (quote ("\256" 0 "%d")) arg)))

    (global-set-key [27 f9] (quote find-alt-tag))

Esc-F9 will find the alternate tag.

I have used kbd macros 
  C-x (  do something C-x )
  C-x C-k n
  M-x insert-kbd-macro 

followed by

    M-x global-set-key RET
    M-x list-command-history RET

For background reading do this.  Note the capital "K"

    C-h K C-x (
    C-h K C-x C-k n

ps: Gnus will truncate a C-u in the find-alt-tag definition above.  But
you have the recipe now, so...
