Two Projects Needed- Custom Clone Button and Automation of Record Creation

I wanted to reach out and see if the following two projects we'd like help with are feasible and if so, what it might cost us.

First-we would love a custom clone button that clones the existing record along with the related records on the record's related list. The record is basically kind of a middle child in the hierarchy-it has a parent but it also has child records associated with it. When we clone it, we'd like to clone the record and its child records. 

Second-we'd love to automate some record creation based on when a new Contact record is created. What records would be created would be dependent on contact record type. Whenever we have certain contacts created, we will always need certain child records. Right now I am manually creating them (they're just basic records that house other related child records like "Medical Information" which has related lists for Medications, Appointments, etc.), but I'd like to not have to remember to do this for every new contact created. 

I am happy to give more detail about what we're specifically looking for, but wanted to first throw this out there and see if anyone was interested in helping out. We are a non-profit agency so our budget is small. We may not be able to make it work financially but wanted to see what it may cost. We do not have a developer on staff-I have learned a lot and am pretty handy with Salesforce but don't know Apex, etc. So you'd be working with someone who has strong administrative knowledge, just no coding experience.

You will get all kind of responces and gamut of price which will only confuse you to pick best service. Have you looked at AppExchange apps? 

iClone app does cloning of records and its related list. You can do field overrides and provide default values. All out of box. I would strongly recommend talking to them. You can get trusted solution for just USD6/user/month. 

You can read their 5 start reviews while you are there. They do not do automation of records, but that can be acheived with help of simple trigger.

Regarding the Cloning functionality, I have created some cool feature in my Project where i'm ready to show you how it looks. Here are the details of the cloning functionality i have build.
1 ) Custom Related List with over 10 fields displayed.
2) Mass edit on the Custom Related List. You can update multiple records at a time.
3) Inline edit on the Custom Related List.
4) Sorting of the fields displayed on the custom related list.
5) Cloning one or Many records which are displayed on the related list under that particular parent
6) Cloning functionality along with the Parent record.
7) Search functionality on the Related List
Your second req is pretty basic since its based on recordtypes. 
Let me know if you are interested to take a look at what i have build and then we can go forward from there.
