What you describe is not trivial or easy with just POIFS. I am furiously
working on HWPF but I don't know when I will have a release ready.

OpenOffice would work and it works on multiple platforms but not as many as
java. Or, if you plan on this beng run on a Windows only machine, just use
vbscript or C#.

If its very urgent, I recommend you hire someone at
http://www.superlinksoftware.com because they specialize in this type of
development. It would probably save you a lot of time.
