Ah, I see.  No, there is nothing like that but it should not be hard to
do it (mostly by copying the code of the #perform:withArguments:
primitive).  One question is, what to do if the primitive fails?  You
need a block for that, right?

Still, I think that the single step mode already in the VM is going to
be always faster than a simulator (and it would be usable for tracing
and profiling).  Have you looked at DebugTools?
