I'm scarcely familiar with -estout- (Ben Jann, SSC) and -estimates
store-, but as for the first part of your question, you can use an
extended macro function to refer to a variable label. For example:

. sysuse auto
. display "`: variable label make'"

It's hard to tell from your example, but I think you actually want a
value label for each value of the numeric variable V7. There is a
different syntax for that:

. display "`: label (foreign) 1'"

In your code it might be:

. somecommand "`: label (V7) `l''"

That is the number 1 in the second to last example and the letter l in
the last example.
