My suggestion? Don't use FileMaker. It doesn't seem like the right tool for the job here.
There are ways to do this type of application, but it would be much easier to do in PHP/MySQL or even a .net app by an experienced developer.
-interaction with system is entirely via browser. (limiting you to CWP or WD in FileMaker).
-"Ideally I would like to create tables on the fly". Won't really happen in FM, you could cobble together a virtual table, but that has many limitations as well.
-"new user as they register". something else easier to do as a web app for browser usage.
-pre-existing packages and such already do similar functions to what you want:
-plus the ability of many frameworks (IE Zend, CodeIgnitor, etc..) to already validate data types in their form classes.
Thnaks for that, I will look elsewhere.
