I had the fanciful idea I could go through some sort of transfer immigration and checked bags would go their own way and appear by magic in PEN.

Reading this thread I'm feeling nervous. Enter Malaysia proper at KUL pick up bags and check in again?? Sounds like a nightmare
This thread relates to AK and klia2, specifically itineraries where AK does not permit connections so one travels on separate tickets.

As for MH, I've not done INT-DOM with MH at KUL but probably like in most countries you need to collect bags, go through immigration and customs, then re-check the bags before the domestic flight, this is assuming Malaysia has a similar setup to most countries where one clears customs at the first port of entry.
