I think PTV (PageTextVariables) will do what you want.

Put this in Templates/Navbox:

Hi, my name is {$:MyName} and I live at {$:Address} but you can call me

Then in page Mygroup.Mypage where you want to see that displayed you put

(:MyName:John Smith:)
(:Address:132 Main St:)
(:include Templates/Navbox:)

Now when you view Mygroup.Mypage you will see

Hi, my name is John Smith and I live at 132 Main St but you can call me Sam.

Is that what you were wanting?  Or were you wanting the variable to be set
in the Nav page?
