I'm not sure to understand your use case -- why do you want clickable text in
the first place (other than links)?

But, did you look at `org-add-link-type' which does allow some kind of
powerful stuff (mainly for export, but can maybe be diverted from its original

I guess you also are aware of the elisp and shell links you can already put in
any Org file, as clickable "buttons"?

Best regards,
