What you'll want to do is create a VC++ add-in that uses the DevStudio automation model to create new projects and manipulate them.  if you lookup 'IBuildProject' in the MSDN Library and then click 'Locate' to take you to that topic in the TOC, you'll see all the available objects and their methods and properties.
Use the 'DevStudio Add-in Wizard' to create your add-in.  The site http://www.codeproject.com/macro/ has several good examples that can give an idea of what you can do in an add-in.
ALso note that projects and workspaces are just text files man, just generate one thats in the format you want and use it as a template.
