Is there a way to setup and script so that the destination and file name of the PDF is automatic and the user can not change it via Adobe Acrobat Distiller or PDFwriter?

Not that I know of (that would be modifying the behaviour of Adobe from the inside).  Can you explain a little more about what you are trying to do?

For example, if you want to automate the PDF creation of all MSWord documents in a directory, this can be scripted to automatically occur with your defined filenames.

If you want the user to open a MSWord document and then restrict what they can save it as when they create a PDF file, I think you are out of luck (certainly if using the Adobe suite).

There are a number of options to creating a PDF file (such as pdf995) that you can also script - significantly cheaper solution...
