Default Action: create track with send from selected track

I would like to see an action/feature that would sound something like "create track with send from selected track" that would automatically create another track right below the selected track that has a send from the selected track routed to the newly created track which is routed to the same parent track.

Another way to do this would but in the context menu of the FX Chain window where you could select an FX in the chain and right click and find in the context menu something like "create fx track with selected fx" that would create a new track right below the currently selected track or track that the FX Chain window belongs to. Also creating a send from the original track to the new track sent to the same parent track and this would move the fx from the current track to the newly created and now "fx track".

It would also be nice to see this in the FX Browser where you can right-click on an FX (and please make it possible to select the FX via the actions menu so it's possible to use a custom action to do this) and it would create a track right below the selected track in the arrange window with a send from the selected to the new fx track.

The nomenclature may be different? "create fx buss" for example?

I am aware of the workaround but I am looking for a single action to do this. Routing is great in Reaper. I'm just trying to take the mouse/prompt out of it for this common practice.

Thanks for listening.

Can't you make a custom action to do it?

Both
Script: mpl_Add receive tracks to selected tracks respectively.lua
and
Script: mpl_Add receive tracks to selected tracks.lua
require a prompt and put the track at the bottom of the tracklist.
I want the track to be inserted right below the currently selected track.

I would like to build a custom action to load a plugin on that track etc.

for example if I wanted a verb on it, I could load a verb and it would be bussed to the same folder track as I would want it to be. If I wanted to add ReaVoice I would then have to set the track inputs to midi and turn on record monitor etc. and I would want this track right below the audio track I was feeding ReaVoice.

If it needs a name then it could be named something automatically taken from the selected track so if the selected track was named vox1, then the new track would be named vox1-fxBuss

I do not need a prompt for a track name I can name the track afterward or auto name it from the vst.

Also worth noting, because my template is around 400 tracks (used to be 4000 in Cubase) I keep my reverb returns at the top of my tracklist so they are easy to find.

The idea of being able to do this from the fx browser context menu or from the fx chain window via the context menu would be grand. I know I can put it in there if an action arrives.

Again I would prefer the new track to be inserted as the following track of the selected track.

"Add/Create send to next track"
and or
"Add/Create receive from previous track"

Would get me to where I want to go for now.

Here is my workaround for adding a Reavoice track under an audio track that I want to feed into it with one click.

Custom: Add ReaVoice FX Track
Track: Insert new surround track, using selected tracks as source audio
SWS: Run console command: l 2
SWS/S&M: Clear FX chain for selected tracks
Track: Set track record monitor to on
Script: Archie_Track; Set selected tracks all MIDI input to all channels.lua
Custom: Add ReaVoice
SWS/S&M: Close all floating FX windows
Script: mpl_Rename selected tracks as first FX.lua
SWS: Enable master/parent send on selected track(s)
Custom: Color selected track from parent or folder track
SWS: Save current track selection
SWS: Select only parent(s) of selected folder track(s)
SWS: Set selected track(s) children to same color
SWS: Restore saved track selection

this creates a send from selected track to the next track, you can save it as a lua file and add it as an action that you can add to your custom action.
Code:
reaper.CreateTrackSend(reaper.GetSelectedTrack(0,0), reaper.CSurf_TrackFromID(reaper.CSurf_TrackToID(reaper.GetSelectedTrack(0,0), false) + 1, false))
