Is this a XFA form (created in LiveCycle Designer), or an AcroForm (created in Adobe Acrobat)?

Also, is this a task you want to run on a server, or on a "normal" computer?

That makes it a bit more challenging. You may want to look into automating Acrobat using IAC/JavaScript. I wrote a few tutorials about this here:

When it comes to XFA forms, you can load an XML file (it needs to be formatted correctly) using the loadXML() method:
