How can I batch-automate changes to PSD/PDF annotations?

I've just finished making a few hundreds annotations to forty or so PSD files, and am quite ready to be done with them. However, being annotations, they all have my name at the top!

Help me move data from a database to a PDF, automagically.

I need to capture data from an HTML form into a database, then use that data to populate a template. The template, however, is of a certificate of accomplishment, and must be in the form of a printable PDF. What's a good software/middleware/whateverware package to automatically take the data and inject it into a PDF like this? More inside. [more inside]

Automatically PDF a website?

How can I automate printing a complete website to PDF?

I need to be able to show what the site looked like on any given date. The site is a sales tool and therefore requires user input on every page, so simply spidering the site is not adequate.

Because the site requires user input all over the place, I'd somehow need to supply the tool with data so it could be fully automated.

Are there tools out there that could do this?

Note: It doesn't necessarily have to be output to PDF, just something manageable and static.

Indexing pagemaker files

We are currently using Pagemaker and moving to indesign, I have over 100 gigs of pagemaker files that I would like to index so I can find files by names in the files (we are business card manufacturers and have kept the files by date) and I would now like to find files by the mainlines of the cards. Does anyone know of a program that can create a searchable index. I was thinking of turning them all into searchable pdf but I am not sure how to do this or if it even exists.
