Workflow letter generation, templates and bulk printing job assistance.

I'm setting up a project on MS Dynamics CRM 9 online to make it easier than running and storing advanced searches and doing mail merges (then running a workflow).  

I need to periodically, automatically or triggered manually, run a bulk merge of letters that should be generated and attached to each entity record upon creation.  I'm stuck 1) creating letters and attaching them to the entity records 2) generating a bulk mail merge from those letters.  

I've got CRM templates ready to go so I believe I'm prepared to link everything together.

I'm a basic to moderate level user and I haven't done any development in CRM so I'm not sure where to go next.

I think you will need to either program this automated behaviour (writing code) or use a third-party add-on such as Documents Core Pack from mscrmaddons (there are others as well).

Where would I start to write the code for this.  Doc core is far too expensive.

Yeah, I know.  If I were to find someone to hire for this, where would I start?  Are there any good places online (or somewhere on this site) that I can work with someone directly on a project like this?
