I'm not sure I get what you want. Couldn't you either a) have the
commands that you want at the end of startup.int, or b) create a .bat
file that launches Xy with what you want?
In regard to (b), you could have a special startup.int that would sit
on your hard drive with a different name (say, special.int) and have
the batch file begin by renaming startup.int to save.int and
special.int to startup.int, then launch xy, then undo the renaming
after xy is finished). There is also a "keystack" program that comes
with 4DOS that may do exactly what PCED did.

If this doesn't do satisfy your needs, give us some examples of what
you want to do.

Merry Xmas,
