I see in another post that it’s possible to create tables and fields via Apps (aka blocks). However, it’s not possible to create Formula, Link, Rollup, Lookup, and Filter fields. This would really be helpful to my use case.

For example, I have a base that manages my finances. A few of the columns have formulas and rollups that are filtered for only including December transactions. When January comes, I would want to click a button that either creates these same columns filtered for January transactions or updates the previous columns.

While you can’t update formulas through apps, if you make your formula dynamic in the first place it would be able to return things for the current month to automatically switch from December to January.
