I would like to know, if there is a compiler (and a language) where I
tell the compiler in the source-code how to compile the source? Let's
say an "incomplete" or "simple" compiler that can be extended if
needed or is this a "perpetuum mobile"?

Thanks for comments

you could add BNF and semantics right in the middle of your program.
