Is this doable at a newbie level?

The below features list is for a small utility I *need* right now, but I
can wait long enough to code it. ;)
Please, resist the urge to whip out the code and post it. I want to try
something myself. I *know* this can be done in LC. What I am asking is
if you think the following can be done by a newbie to LC?
PS - Don't go away... I may *need* you to "whip out" some syntax later!
Here's the list...
Here is a list of requested features...
* "Always On Top" option
* Three Buttons.
o Date and Time
+ The "Date and Time" button to include date, at least in
this specific format, but others can be included...
"Nov 15, 2010 02:43 PM" (color only for reference,
not needed in app.)
Please ask me for other formats, if you want to
* Optional Radio buttons to select Date/Time formats *if* you have the
time and inclination. The Date & Time format above,"Nov 15, 2010 02:43
PM," is my only immediate need.
o "Date & Time" Mmm DD, YYYY HH:MM AM (the same as the above exact
example that is really the most important format.)
o Another Date format MM/DD/YY (Example: 01/14/11)
o Time format 1: HH:MM (24 Hr Clock)
o Time format 2: HH:MM AM (12 Hr Clock)
o YYYYMMDDHHSS - I use this to prefix file names as a simple date
* It would be nice to be typing in a text editor and just click the
"Insert Date" button and populate it in the document I am working on,
but I can settle for sending it to the clipboard if that is all that can
be done easily.
* Small footprint
o Just big enough for the radio buttons (for the format selections)
and the three "Date," Time" and "Date & Time" insertion buttons.
o Menu in Right-Click menu, if easier.
