I have been working with LaTeX since about thirteen years and enjoy the simple beauty of the generated documents.

My interests lie in the creation of documentations and the automation of typesetting. Some of my German & English articles can be found here: http://uweziegenhagen.de/?page_id=159

I am member and board member of Dante e.V. (http://www.dante.de), the German-speaking TeX/LaTeX users group and contribute regularly to Dante's magazine, the "Die TeXnische Komödie".

Is there a specific reason not to use a newer version of TeX Live? 2011 is pretty old.

comment latex to word? — OCR?
If it's clear for a specific document, that it will need to be converted to Word, I'd have a look at markdown (see pandoc and others) This is will allow you to convert to LaTeX and Word easily.

comment Creating a LaTeX Template which is filled by a script
Have a look for "template engines" like Jinja2 (based on Python) or others. I have made good experience with Jinja2 which helped me to print dozens of German tax forms. I'll create a more detailed answer later.

You could draw the Shape in InkScape and export to TikZ. Then put it in the background and use textpos to position your text.
