Textorizer Effect with AE

After hours spending in front of After Effects with no reasonable result at all, i hope some of you guys have an idea for solving my problem:
I try to achieve an effect similar to this one: http://textorizer.whatfettle.com/
I have a keyed sequence of an arm moving across the frame and i'd like this arm to consist only of words.
If possible the words should align along the edges and have a different behaviour according to the RGB values:
darker regions = more and smaller, opaque text
bringhter regions = less and bigger, more transparent text
Ideally the words don't change every frame, but move along with the moving arm.
I experimented with Particle Playground and Particular but didn't get a solution at all.
Maybe someone can give me a hint how this can be done? Can this be done at all?
Thanks a lot!
