I have some initial conditions that are specified by functions of (x,y,z).

I would like to programmatically define a field whose values are a function of (x,y,z). Can this be done as part of field construction, rather than looping over cells/faces and setting each value individually?

Further, can I set the internal field and boundary values in a straightforward manner?

You need to loop over the cells and manually assign them values. Same for the boundary, you can use a fixedValue BC and assign values to patch faces.
