Do you have a picture of the music? My guess is this is a typo and it should probably say something like Cm/Eb which is easy to do. C/Em doesn't make sense in any form of musical notation I'm aware of.

Like the other answers, I don't know what your notation is supposed to mean, but you can get (almost) anything you want using "chord name exceptions" to define your own markup. To repeat, I have no idea if the notes c e g b are what your chord notation is supposed to mean - but if you only want chord symbols, the notes don't matter much. \version "2.18.2" ...

What does exist are polychords where two different chords are stacked on top of each other. ...

MusicXML is now transitioning into a W3C standard. Are you aware that there is a newly-created W3C Music Notation Community Group? The goals are to evolve the ...

I'm also not aware of anything like this, yet. OrchestralLily has been around for a bit and presents some template-type automation, but I haven't played with it much. The docs for the development version (2.19) have this information about a couple of built-in templates for vocal ensembles. One could probably work out the beginnings of a framework from ...

This does not exist, to my knowledge. Right now Lilypond is more like TeX as originally created; but no one has yet come along to create the equivalent of LaTeX for it. LaTeX provided a robust template system for TeX that made it usable for a wider range of users and made it possible to separate content from presentation. Likewise, though there are some ...
