I don't know about the standard macros, but with the mom macros,
you can certainly do it.  It's very easy.  All you have to do is
create a diversion then pass .HEADER_LEFT the name of the

Assuming a .ps file called

        .di FIGURE
        .PSPIC -L
        .\" Reference macros, etc. here, then...
        .HEADER_LEFT "\\*[FIGURE]"

Just two caveats: you must use two backslashes before the diversion
name passed to .HEADER_LEFT (as you see above), and you may have to
adjust the vertical positioning.  That's easily enough done inline
in the argument passed to .HEADER_LEFT.  E.g., if you find
is a couple of points lower than you'd like, you can fix it with
something like

        .HEADER_LEFT "\*[UP 2p]\\*[FIGURE]"
