These questions are probably more suited to a different mailing list
as this one is predominantly for helping in learning the elementary
aspects of programming in Python.

If you can perhaps ask a more specific Python question it might be
appropriate here. Otherwise I suggest that you either:
a) Ask on the pysphere mailing list (I have no idea what pysphere is
so this may not be appropriate)
b) Use a search engine to find a project that already does what you want
c) Ask for general help on python-list where people may know of a good
way to do what you want in Python
