I probably wouldn't go the route of scripting.

Instead, I'd configure SecureCRT to enable the Copy on Select Global Option, and create buttons to send commands based on what's in the clipboard.

Here's how I'd create my buttons:

Here's how I'd enable SecureCRT to automatically copy to the clipboard whatever I select:

With such a configuration in place, I'd simply click the first button to show the interfaces...

...then I'd double-click the interface I was interested in (the easy way to select the word underneath the mouse cursor is to double-click it).

Because "Vlan1" now selected, it's also copied to the clipboard.
Knowing that what's in the clipboard is what I want to include in the next two commands (e.g. the \v portion), I'd then click my other two buttons in succession...

Low cost. High value. Time $aving$.
