I am a developer but not a solidworks developer. Using the document manager I have been able to access the Mass properties to get things like the surface area of a SLDPRT file.
I am tasked with the following items:
1) provided an SLDPRT file, System interrogates file and extracts linear cut dimension and number of profiles. (number of profiles seems easy)
2) provided a DXF file, System interrogates file and extracts linear cut dimension and number of profiles.
I would be willing to contract out this work if necessary.
This application will be hosted as a web service. I already have a license key and the document manager installed (registered)
Looking for any assistance.

Just a couple things to clarify before digging into getting the information you're looking for...
Document Manager API doesn't have access to feature or geometry information. You'll need to use the SolidWorks API and a running instance of SolidWorks to save the DXF as well.
Also, be careful that you're not violating the terms and conditions for hosting SolidWorks in a web service.
