It should be possible that a (Java) (UNO) add-in function determines the calling cell (sheet name, row and column) similar to Application.Caller in VBA.

Note that there are already build-in spreadsheet functions, which perform such a task (like ROW() and COLUMN()), but afaik there is no method that an add-in function can find out s.th. about the calling cell.
