I did the whole site myself, so know I can develop these things I need. I just need some guidance on using the Scripti9ng to access metadata, really. Perhaps some code examples of people who may already have done this. And how do I "run" the scripts? Through VBscripts? Or through Acrobat?
This is certainly possible in a variety of ways.
If you are dead set on a web front end, you won't be able to use Acrobat (and the Acrobat SDK only automates Acrobat, it cannot be used without an Acrobat installation). For this, you would want to look at a product like Adobe LiveCycle PDF Generator where you could refry your existing PDFs with new metadata gathered from a webservice.
If you were to develop a single-user desktop application in VB or C#, then you could accomplish this with the Acrobat SDK.
I'm finding it difficult to locate help on using the Acrobat DOM from vbScript in an ASP page. I can create an Acrobat object and open a file, but what I want to do then is to watermark the pages, and I can see no methods to do this. There is a 'menu item' command, so I wondered if I can do it via that. I am using Acrobat 8 Standard.
Does anyone know how to do this, or where I might find resources to help me?

That's because you can't. Please reader section 2.3 ("Server Use") of the Acrobat End-User License Agreement.
Depressing news, PDL, but it saves me a fruitless search, so thanks.
Does this imply that I could achieve the desired result on a standalone PC? That would be a second best route, as at least I could upload the watermarked files once done.
