Advice on creating a product update form - image updating, thumbnail creating, text updating

In a CMS that we're building I'd like to have forms for adding and updating products on a website.
What is the best approach, using WebAssist extensions, in order to achieve this?
We need:

1) Basic text form fields (to add/update thing like the title, price, weight etc)
2) Drop-down menus (that are populated dynamically using recordsets but that retain the correct value should we be editing a product)
3) Textarea form fields that will allow users to enter formatted text with <p> tags for paragraph breaks.
4) File upload form fields that will allow users to upload product photographs (option to create a thumbnail on the fly?)

We've used so many solutions over the years (Interakt, DMXzone etc) and we just want to streamline this into one extension, or one set of extensions, if at all possible.

Would appreciate any advice offered, thank you.
