[OS X TeX] Form Documents

For 10 years we have been using Word and VBA to generate form  
documents. We enter name, address, etc for one person, then use that  
information to generate 24 different documents, each one customized  
with the name, address, etc. for the one person.

Is there some way of doing this with TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt so:

1. The users have a Mac-like dialog box where they can tab forward,  
backward, etc to enter the information about the person, then press  
OK to create the 24 docs.

2. The user can do as number 1, but then select from a list the docs  
they want to create.

3. The user can edit the text of the output PDF with Acrobat or  
whatever and the lines still wrap and the pages still break. BTW, the  
output is double spaced.
