Auto assembly of line items or portal?



I am really struggling with this and my eyes are bleeding from searching on Google for answers for what feels like an eternity, so I am going to have to ask you:

On my main layout form [Orders] the user goes through some steps to determine which kind of solar system he wants to build. These steps consist of drop-down lists, which eventually help determine which items, and how many of these items, go into that system.

The business distributes 6 solar system sizes, but there are quite a few variations in each size, such as whether tin or tile brackets are needed, qty of rails etc.

Basically the above mentioned drop-downs determine exactly which system the customer needs. What I would like to do is to have a button at the bottom of the form which, when pressed, will automatically build the correct system assembly. 

On the [Orders] layout I currently have a conditional value list in a portal to Line Items and this works perfectly in building these system manually. I am, however, finding it really difficult to script an automatic assembly for this portal. Am I doind this the wrong way, do I need to script the auto assembly to go through Line Items directly instead?

Hope it makes sense to you lol
