On second thoughts, the following set should be helpful:

(defun my-grep-base(grep-cmd params)
  (grep (format "%s %s %s" grep-cmd (car params) (cadr params))))

(defun my-grep-params(pattern file-name)
  "My own version of grep command"
  (interactive "sPattern: \nFFind %s in file(s): ")
  (list pattern file-name))

(defun my-grep()
  (my-grep-base "grep -e" (call-interactively #'my-grep-params)))

(defun my-lgrep()
  (my-grep-base "lgrep -e" (call-interactively #'my-grep-params)))

(defun my-rgrep()
  (my-grep-base "rgrep -e" (call-interactively #'my-grep-params)))

and you can define lgrep and rgrep in your .bashrc (or .bash_aliases) as 

alias lgrep='grep -n '
alias rgrep='grep -nR '
