ADD FX channel to send of selected track option

Currently there is a "add send" and "add fx channel" command but there doesn't seem to be a command that gives the same effect as dragging a plugin to he send of a track that automatically links the two.  if you use the 'add send" it brings up a dropdown menu and if you try to follow that up with add fx channel it makes an FX channel that is not linked to the track.  

I would like to be able to make.a macro that can either add a new FX channel to the send of the selected track and be able to choose what FX are on the FX channel the same way i can with instruments and inserts (fx chains, device argument via macro).

I would also like to be able to add a send to an already loaded FX channel by specifying its FX channel track name)  Meaning if i have a track called VERB LONG i want to be able to make a macro like

add send (name: VERB LONG)

if i have a track called VERB LONG the currently selected track sends to that track.

Hopefully we can do this for sidechains as well for people that have templates with pre specified plugin sidechain plugin names and routing.  so i can quickly sidechain something to a trackspacer or compressor after my reverb or delay
