Can the [press F5 + Enter keys simultaneously to go back the previous cell] be automated as a macro? If so, how, as I've tried to record it and that does not work. Also, I have tried creating a macro with [SendKeys "%{F5}" + "{ENTER}"] (as per other posts) but this only operates the last command, ie. "enter".

No, it just a shortcut.

「1.ショートカットを使用して前のセルに戻る前に、まず現在のセルを選択して、に移動する必要があります。 名前ボックス、プレス 入力します」 この部分の日本語の意味がよくわかりません。タイプミスですか?
