1) You are asking if there macros in Python: the answer is "NO".

2) You are asking if it is possible to implement macros in Python: the 
answer is "YES, but why would you do that?".

Few months ago, as a proof of concept, I wrote a module to implemente 
macros in Python and I can send the code to you, if interested. But I 
never use that code, I don't feel the need for macros in Python.
Many people here are opposed to introduce macros, for very good
reasons: a little of googling will give you plenty of information on
the subject.
