I do not think you should replace the whole parseFunc, you can just replace the tag (see next).

You can call your old code from your own TYPO3 extension to process a custom tag from RTE. Kickstarter will generate such extension with all code for you.

I think custom tag may contain parameters. TYPO3 has custom tag <LINK>, which has parameters. I think you will get them in your extension and extension will return actual HTML code.

May be this extension can give you an idea how to implement it:

I never tried this extension myself though.
