Is there any way to manipulate the macro recorder while it is recording using Excel VBA.
For instance. I want the range to always be selection and not the static range selected.

Unfortunately the macro recorder can't be configured to generate more efficient code. We use it to generate basic working code and then modify that code to be more efficient.
