tn5250 does not have a way to do this at the mo. But I believe you could accomplish the same thing by scripting tn5250 using something like expect. Many moons ago there was some work done to provide specific scripting support in tn5250 using python but that hasn't continued.

Based on the pdf below is there anyway to call a macro file on startup?

I'm guessing the PDF you mention is the HOWTO.  AFAIK there is no way to
specify a macro file on startup.  But do you mean a macro file or a macro
within that file to run on startup?  tn5250 uses ~/.tn5250macros for all
its macros.  Do you want to use a different file?  Or do you want to
specify a particular macro within .tn5250macros to be run?
