Is there any way to edit PDF fields from outside a pdf?
Not with Acrobat. You mentioned python, though, where I'm sure it's possible. You can also use other PDF libraries for stand-alone applications, like in Java.
As TSN correctly said, this goes beyond the scope of this forum. If you're interested in hiring someone to create such a tool for you feel free to contact me privately via [try6767 at gmail.com].
