I'm using the latest version (pandoc 2.10). `--latex-engine` was the
name of the `--pdf-engine` option in pandoc 1.* (support for other,
non-LaTeX, pdf engines was added in version 2.0, such as the HTML based
WeasyPrint and wkhtmltopdf engines).

There are also docker images, which might be simpler in some cases. But
the command is a mouthful:

    docker run --rm -v "$PWD":/data -u $(id -u) pandoc/latex \
        --pdf-engine=xelatex -o lua5.4.pdf \

BTW, pandoc allows document modifications via Lua:
