I want zombie pigmen to be tamable using a certain item (golden carrot, golden apple, etc.) for several reasons:
1. Making the Nether easier to be in. If you tame a zombie pigman in the nether, if you hit them they won't attack back, but if you are attacked by any monster, they will fight them for you.
2. Making armies! If you tame a bunch of zombie pigmen and give them name tags, you can have them follow you around and attack whatever you target. This can bring a lot of flavor to player versus player, not to mention make raids a little less of a threat.
Here are some specifications that can give this feature more utility:
1. Armoring Pigmen. If you grow attached to zombie pigmen, or just want to have stronger pigmen, you can place armor on them and remove them like you would an armor stand by crouching and right clicking on them while they are not in attack mode.
2. Pigman Potion. Wolves naturally follow you once they are tamed, unless they are sitting down. However, if you want pigmen to, for example, walk around your home and act as a guard like iron golems do, then you don't want them just sitting in one place. So, you can make them follow you with the Pigman potion (name not certain) and it will last until you use a bucket of milk to take the enchantment away. Then they will follow you wherever you go, except without the teleportation ability wolves have, that would be too powerful.
