I personally wouldn’t try to run one program that wants to do its
own interactive terminal control from within another such program;
that’s just asking for trouble.

I wrote an Emacs function called make-command-buffer (available
as part of <>) which feeds a selected
part of the buffer’s contents to a predefined command (which can be
an interpreter like python, bash, perl, bc or whatever you want), and
inserts any returned output into the same buffer. That way you keep all
the necessary editing and history management within Emacs.
