Is it possible to run parts of a user macro based on data entered into an input in page?

I have some user macros that run queries on users and groups that currently require the user to edit the page, change a parameter, and then save the page to see the results. I would prefer that simply that I can put a text input field into part of the macro, which is then included in the page, which then runs the code when a user hits the submit button.

Is such a thing possible?

If your user macro includes a form and also reads request parameters, when you submit the form it could reload the page. Alternatively, it could do some query using AJAX and then display data returned.
