I gave your post time to see if anyone found such a printer
I never found one. Yes there were those nice dye sublimation printers but those have passed into the realm where you don't find them very often.
I see you have many questions but let's bring the one about printer languages to Earth. That was a very hot topic over a decade ago and is dead as far as I can see. Today all that is done by the OS and the printer driver. So unless we are to dig up the past, I'd say "Forget about it, Bones."
The print quality I see from color laser in the sub 2K range is what I would use for business. I would not call it "quality." For that I get back to Photo ink printers or get research how to see a dye sub printer.
Sample prints are available at most places so you can see what the machines produce.
