Input layer and text selection

I'm not entirely sure of the scope of what's possible but I'm trying to do the following:

Pretext: I have 52 layers named a1 to z1 and also a2 to z2. Each layer has a letter corrseponding to its name. A2 is just a different letter A. The intention is to input a name and generate that name based on the text. I'm planning to print out peoples names that they input. But I don't want to manually sort out each name and each layer on every single order, and since print on demand sites wouldn't allow me to upload 52 pictures, sort and print based on someone's input I would have to at least somewhat do this normally. The name would display based one 1 then 2 then 1 then 2.

for example inputting ADAM, would select layer A1 then move, D2 then move, A2 then move, M1 then move. This is how I envision it, let me know if I'm on the right track please:

  1. Upon clicking action input a name.
  2. Append a 1 corresponding to the first letter of that input and select that layer,
  3. Move layer.
  4. Check for input length.
  5. if more than 1, select the next letter in the input and append a 2,
  6. Move layer,
  7. Continue to input length finishes.

 

to simplify id set up each position from one to ten and just select that as a position based on the input length in the sequencer.

 

Can this be done in photoshop?
