You might find this helpful.
Evaluate Expressions. This is one of my favorite things I've ever written. It parses expressions and evaluates them. It's the basis for a mini language that got put on hold for some time.

In the evaulate sub, right after  @$ops = grep { defined $_ } @$ops; You basically have a parse tree.

For your example, you'd have
(foo*2) + (foo*3) $ops = [ [ 'foo', '*', '2' ], '+', [ 'foo', '*', '3' ] ];
You could modify it there to optimize the tree the way you w ant.
