This sounds like a job for the API (see api.vtiger.com). Rather than doing direct writes, you can create an instance of a Quote object and then save it. 

If you haven't got the auto email part worked out, try the Auto Email Notification project on the forge (http://forge.vtiger.com/projects/autoemails/). It's built to send exactly that type of email.
