Seeking advice on good tools for automating the maintenance of a professional flickr site, and ways to make an interface to it.

I am in the process of making thousands of professional-quality photos available through flickr, along with some friends. We love the idea of using flickr to host our images because of the size of its user base, and we do not want to fully reinvent the wheel for sharing photos. We have already uploaded and tagged half of our images.
Now I am wondering if there are any good programs to automate the maintenance of our flickr site. I would be especially interested in programs that allow us to do things like change all of the descriptions of photos in a set at the same time, or add all of the photos tagged in a certain way to a set.
Also, are there any ways to use flickr as a back-end for a photo database, such that we could use our own non-flickr website as an interface to our images on flickr? Unfortunately our web-development skills are limited, so we would only be willing to try easy-to-implement solutions.
Thanks in advance for any advice that you can provide.
