I don’t know what a “lsp” and “.compile_commands” is.

No, there isn’t.  Generally, patches that are applied in a snippet are
performed before the build starts, so that you can get the modified
source code with “guix build -S the-package”, but patching shebangs is
done as part of the gnu-build-system build phases.

You can attempt to execute the procedures that make up the
gnu-build-system manually, but there’s no quick way to do this
