comment OGR DXF to KML conversion
You need to know what system your data is in, than you can add it to the command line of ogr2ogr: -s_srs srs_def; anyway if you want to store in a database converting to kml is not needed. What database do you want to export to (update the question, don't add comments)

comment What is the unit of measurement for scale?
Unless exporting to WMS, 96 pixels/inch is the default for mapguide, and the only possibility when using tiled basemaps.

comment How to export labels to DXF file?
Why would you like to export as DXF? Which program do you wnat to use to read the exported files? Perhaps there are better ways. In general dxf is a rather poorly supported fileformat.

comment How to intersect lines and polygons in R?
Do you have to do the intersection in R? You could just do the intersection in saga and import again afterwards. Anyway, only 2 downloads should be needed for RSAGA: install.packages("RSAGA") and then saga itself.

comment How to generate reports from a Shapefile?
Check my old question which is actually similar: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/6318/… . One of the answers points towards a mapbookplugin for qgis: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/4714/qgis-producing-mapbooks/…

comment Open source engine that is similiar to ArcEngine
You may want to explain what ArcEngine is doing and especially what you want to doe to get more useful suggestions. People who are familiar with Open Source software are not necessarily familiar with ESRI.
