Can you elaborate on what exactly you are trying to do? Open an application upon connection to an RDS server? Launch and RDC session from an application? Not sure I understand what is desired.

You need only text editor to prepare your own rdp file.
Description of fields you can find here:

If you have windows clients win7 and above, you may get .rdp files for all remote apps with RSS feeds

Also with win8 client you can simply create one TXT record in DNS and then from your RD web access server you can obtain those RDP files if you want.
I deally those files get stored on local machine as available remote app and you don't need to copy them seperately

Follow steps in below article to get .rdp files

if you need a simple RDP connection, open RDP Client (mstsc.exe) configure the destinationserver, expand  "options" and  click "save".

optionally you may configure additional options like drive mappings before saving the rdp-file.
