Why do you need a lisp routine for this? Would make a much easier macro routine. 

^C^C-plot;"Y";;"HP Color Laser Jet 5/5M PS - Windows System Driver - by Autodesk.pc3";"A4";"Inches";"Landscape";"N";"W";;;"F";"C";;;;;;;;^C^C-plot;"Y";;"HP Color Laser Jet 5/5M PS - Windows System Driver - by Autodesk.pc3";"A4";"Inches";"Landscape";"N";"W";;;"F";"C";;;;;;;;

For the command paste the following

Code: [Select]
^C^C-plot;"Y";;"HP Color Laser Jet 5/5M PS - Windows System Driver - by Autodesk.pc3";"A4";"Inches";"Landscape";"N";"W";;;"F";"C";;;;;;;;^C^C-plot;"Y";;"HP Color Laser Jet 5/5M PS - Windows System Driver - by Autodesk.pc3";"A4";"Inches";"Landscape";"N";"W";;;"F";"C";;;;;;;;
I think this is correct but I cannot test it.

You could also look into plotter pagesetups and sheet set manager.
CAB has a plottabs routine that works well.
And some code to apply a pagesetup to all layouts.
