Depending a bit on which UNIX version you have, printing through cups for example is just as simple as this:

lp <filename>

When printing more that one file, just create a basic loop like this:

for file in file1 file2 file3; do lp ${file}; done;

And for your directory question, create it using mkdir <directory>, set to read only by removing the write permissions using chmod -w <directory>, try copying a file to it using cp <file> <directory>/ - use your terminal output as a starter for explaining what is happening.

Pls. try and post your experiences and feedback :)
