Since you seem to have some specific requirement, I'd recommend you
engage with someone with experience in freeradius implementation and
integration in your area. Most people here won't have the time to go
thru your detailed request one-by-one and designing a best solution
for you. Remember, those who contribute on this list do so on their
free time, out of their good will.

Some comments though

FR has all sorts of module that can modify radius packets on proxy scenarios.
Unlang is perfect for simple and static rules (e.g. "add attribute X
with value Y to every packet") while for complex rules (e.g. get value
of attribute X, lookup value in db, then create attribute Y based on
that value) mod_perl is probably more suitable.
