What have you tried?  Have you looked at ol-eshell.el?

IIUC what you want boils down to having an eshell link that runs a
command.  I don't use ol-eshell myself, but, taking a quick look, this
seems to be possible.  For example, say I have a link like

    [[eshell:*eshell*:echo hello]]

Following that gives me

    Welcome to the Emacs shell

    /tmp $ echo hello
    /tmp $
