comment Refer to appendix with \includepdf
Since you are including full pages as a PDF, where should the headline go? Before the first page of the PDF? In that case a simple \section{Title for PDF} before the \includepdf should do (and you would not need the addtotoc). If you want the headline on the first page of the PDF, I don't have an answer, I'm sorry.

comment Tab based syntax wrapper around LaTeX?
Are you looking for an indentation-based syntax where indentation denotes block structure (like in Python or Haskell)?

Could you post your code? Do you want just a TOC entry and a label for the PDF or create a headline, too?

The \includepdf command provides an addtotoc parameter to make entries into the table of contents. See this example: TOC entries and labels for included PDF pages.

comment Generating pdf after reading from database
The mechanism is called \write18 and it is discussed under the tag write18. Here is an example: stackoverflow.com/a/3253068/44082. Note that you need to enable shell execution from pdflatex on the command line with --shell-escape.

comment Generating pdf after reading from database
There are two possible architectures: generate a LaTeX document from a program that queries the database - as you suggested. Or write a LaTeX document that queries the database during execution using the shell mechanism. This still requires writing the queries in some program but factors out all the static part of the document which helps maintaining it.

comment What does this mean in LaTex?
Without compiling the document (which seems to require quite some effort, given it's size), I can't tell. That's why providing a minimal working example (MWE) that highlights your problem would be helpful.

comment TOC entries and labels for included PDF pages
Just a guess: when you add a document of one page, you can't have a TOC entry for page 18 of it. Try addtotoc={1,subsection,2,CV,cv}.
