Custom text generated from xRef

Im looking to set up an Xpresso rig that mimics the text setup in C4D whereby i can type in a custom line of text and the characters will reference specific xRef files for the corresponding characters.

The end goal is to have a setup where i can type in custom text, and each character will reference a letter specific xref (with type character animation) making it easy to use for future projects so that im not positioning individual letters by hand.

Any ideas?

it is possible to swap the Reference of an xref with xpresso but I don't know any way to determine separate letters in a line of text (not that someone doesn't know something) - positioning the xrefs to align to the text (using what? Where does the 'custom text' get entered?) even harder. Maybe python or coffee but not xpresso I think.
