Writing to Files (Smart fields or Templates)

I am brand new to Alfresco.  I am told that the software does not (cannot) take physical actions to files.  So that if I promote a word document through a workflow I cannot have actions such as stamping or updating a watermark, recording reviewer's name and reviewed completion date, updating physical revision on the document.  Can someone please confirm this functionality is not (A) OOB functionality or (B) possible with a reasonable (<40 hours)  amount of coding?  Thank you (and be nice!)
