Is there a way, by using REXXON, to retrieve information from a file for distributed jobs? NT_JOB or UNIX_JOB? Like there is for a mainframe job?

No, there is no REXX function to retrieve distributed file directly. And here are the ways to get it around:
#1 You can FTP the file to mainframe, then use it the same way;
#2 Run any command/tool (non-ESP) to retrieve the data from the file, then run ESPmgr utility to pass the data to variables on ESP.
