Because your objective requires unattended operation, you will NOT
be able to use any part of Adobe Acrobat itself in the development of the
solution - that means looking for libraries and/or products with the
features that you need.

Dionis ( offers a product called Ari's
PDFSplitter that can do some (but not all) of what you need. They also do
custom development so perhaps they would be willing to make the necessary
adjustments for your needs.

Appligent ( offers a library called SPDF
that provides all the pieces you needs (text extraction, page splitting,
etc.) but you'll need to write all of the actual "application framework"
around it.

Let me know if I can help further...
