If I understand correctly, you want to maybe run a script instead 
of the program usually associated with files of that type?

Write a shell script that changes to the directory you want, then 
runs the program and loads a file from its command-line 

Then open the settings dialog for the filetype in question and 
specify your shell script as the program to run when opening 
files of that type.

Does that answer your question? Not sure I understand, but that 
seems to be what you want to do.
