Actually, I made a mistake in the code I originally posted and didn't
catch it because I hadn't restarted the kernel. It should read as
follows:
Clear[u, v, x, y, z, gRefCZ, gImfCZ, gEqRefCZ, gEqImfCZ,
gDomToRangeRe,
gDomToRangeIm];
Clear[f, fCZ, fCXY];
x /: Im[x] = 0;
x /: Re[x] = x;
y /: Im[y] = 0;
y /: Re[y] = y;
fCZ[z_] := \[ImaginaryI] z + \[ImaginaryI];
fCXY = ComplexExpand[fCZ[x + \[ImaginaryI] y]];
gRefCZ = Re[fCXY];
gImfCZ = Im[fCXY];
gEqRefCZ = u == gRefCZ;
gEqImfCZ = v == gImfCZ;
gDomToRangeRe = Solve[gEqRefCZ, y];
gDomToRangeIm = Solve[gEqImfCZ, x];
Print["Given:\nf(z) = ", fCZ[z]];
Print["Let z = x + \[ImaginaryI]y"];
(* The following line is where my question pertains*)
Print["f(x + \[ImaginaryI]y) = ", fCZ[x + \[ImaginaryI] y], " = ",
fCXY,
" = ", gRefCZ, " + \[ImaginaryI](", gImfCZ, ")."];
Print["The real part of f(z) = ", fCZ[z], " is ", gRefCZ,
" and the imaginary part is ", gImfCZ, "."];

Sorry about that,
