Using submodules plus `dynamic-require` is the right idea. Maybe you
tried `module+` to put together parts of the submodule, but `module+`
implicitly imports the enclosing module.

To avoid that dependency, you can implement `my-define` in the same way
that `module+` is implemented, as demonstrated below.

 > (dynamic-require '(submod "my-file.rkt" my-info) 'my-proc)
 '((property1 . "some value") (property2 . 12))

;; my-file.rkt:

#lang racket/base
(require (for-syntax racket/base

  (define submodule-content '()))

(define-syntax (my-define stx)
  (syntax-parse stx
    [(_ proc ([prop prop-val] ...) rhs)
     (when (null? submodule-content)
     (set! submodule-content
           (cons (syntax-local-introduce
                      (provide proc)
                      (define proc (list (cons 'prop prop-val) ...))))
     (syntax/loc stx
       (define proc rhs))]))

(define-syntax (generate-submodule stx)
  #`(module my-info racket/base #,@submodule-content))

(my-define my-proc
    ([property1 "some value"] ; some properties of my-proc
     [property2 12])
    (lambda (x) (displayln x) 3))

(my-proc 'ok)
