There are no generic mechanisms in TYPO3. That's one reason why there  
are so many extensions :-(

The only thing that can help is to use fe_AdminLib.inc to render the  
forms, which also makes it possible to define a function for handling  
the data. But fe_AdminLib is necessarily linked to a database table  
and will require you to create an extension anyway. There are  
extensions which make it easier to user fe_AdminLib, but they also  
tend to assume things that you don't necessarily want...
