If you look into the source of the MediaWiki template example, you can see that with that complexity there is no advantage the user is able to edit the template via a Wiki page.

Then it is better to have a meta page about the template, where users can suggest improvements.

The equvivalent in WackoWiki is the action. Additionally you can include other pages. In a action you can combine all aspects of the WackoWiki engine.

You might create a ##""{{tpl name="river"}}""## meta action and include other actions and asociated  templates, e.g. ##tpl_river.php## + ##tpl_river.tpl##.

The rest is PHP and HTML, optionally JavaScript.
