I am exactly looking for this solution myself.

For the Split & Merge function, ARTS may have the solution for you elsewhere on this site.

Tray selection remains an issue.
From Exchange (or Reader), the document can be printed from the desired printer tray (depending on the Windows driver and the printer).
However, this tray selection applies to the whole document.

Acrobat does not allow input tray selection on a "per page" or "page range" basis, as desired by you and myself.

So far, I have not been able to find a plug-in that can do this.
You may consider to print each individual document or page range to file (PostScript).
Using a PostScript downloader, you may then merge these files for submission to the printer. Tray settings made for each individual document will be kept and used.

I realize that this is not the most user-friendly way of working.
However, it is the best I found so far.
Should you find anything, please let me know.
