Is this the sort of thing you had in mind?

Dimensions/@{xdata,ydata} -> {{n,p},{n,q}}

f[x_,params_] := function that takes a row of xdata and gives an
estimate of the corresponding row of ydata as a function of params;

FindMinimum[#.#&@Flatten[ f[#,params]&/@xdata - ydata ],
            parameter names and initial guesstimates]
