Linking remote DB to local image folder querry

Post

Three questions regarding creating a path between a hosted FM DB and images on a local drive. 

We have a remotely hosted FM DB running on a filemaker server and several employees working in the field on both Mac's & PC's.  The DB contains contact information and on each employees computer are images relating to their contacts.

We would like to script a file path so that based on the log-on FM would recognize the file path to that local image folder and display the images that go with the contacts. 

Additionally when a new record is created and named the same as a corresponding image in the local image file, FM would display that image in the container on commitment.  If there is no corresponding image in the local image file then "No Image" would be displayed in the container instead.  

Finally, could FM recognize the correct corresponding image regardless of image extension .jpg, pdf, png? 
 
Thank you
