To call a function on args remotely, you just use apply:

rc = Client()
dview = Client[:]

def f(a):
    return a*2

# call f(5) on every engine:
dview.apply(f, 5)

# send f to all engines (as 'g', you can give it any name), so you can use
it many times:
dview['g'] = f

# now you can call it with execute:
