If you are satisfied with TeXForm, then why not wrap your expression in 
HoldForm and then use TeXForm.

For example:

TeXForm[ HoldForm[2^2] ]



If there is some input line that you want to write out as TeX, you can use 
Extract. For example, if line 8 had the input


Then you could recover this input as follows:
