methods & parameters on the fly from an XML or tab-delim file?

If you have an object called MyLibrary is there any way to add method
signatures automatically from data (stored in xml or a delimited file?)
for instance (view this in fixed width):

MyMethod1 MyName,String MyAge,Int16
MyMethod2 MyColor,String MySize,Int32 MyWeight,Int16
MyMethod3 MyAnniversary,D ate HasLicense,Bool ean MyID,Int32

The code for all methods would be the same generic method, which would
be able to read the specific method name as a string, and be able to
reference the parameters (and types) for that particular call in some
kind of collection.

Any idea how one would do this?

Another example is where the...
