Default Forms Development in Word

I have a general question about developing forms in Word.
1) I'm familiar with how to development Word forms using the Forms Toolbar
with text fields, checkboxes and dropdown boxes. I have developed basic Word
forms using Tables and the various items just mentioned.
2) Here is the situation: I had a student in class recently that wants to
take about 100 Word documents (1-2 pages each) and convert them to Word Forms
that will be filled out electronically. A typical document for them presently
is being filled out by the users with a pen. Man of the forms for example
have underlines, 1-5 numbers that have been circled, and a place to write
comments, etc.
3) Question: Has anyone been through a process like this, how long would one
expect the conversion to take, and things to watch out for? I know this is
very general but I have never been involved in a major undertaking like this
and I want the person to know what they are getting into.
4) It would be my expectation that this would be extremely time consuming
with this many documents and very challenging to get some forms looking just
the way one might want.

Any links or advice would be greatly appreciated !
