If I correctly understand your question, you should check out xdotool, which allows for simulating keyboard input. You can use it for writing a script that simulates a specific sequence of keystrokes. Then you can assign this script to a specific key using bindsym. Just don't forget to add --release after bindsym, or it may not work.

Yes, thank you! That's what I was looking for.
