Project possible? - select feature and show data from connected ones in a form

so let's see if the new forum works.


I want to begin a python project. I have a little experience in things like SQL, VBA, PHP and I did a few little python scripts. Before I start this project I would like to know whether it is possible in principle. I know that this is no easy thing but I am willing to learn.


Ok, here is what I want to do.


In my ArcGIS project there is a line shape and polygon shape. In both layers are joint ID fields. So some polygon features are connected to one line feature by this ID.

I want to create an addon that, if a line is selected, show me the data from the line feature in an form view. In that same form the data of all connected polygon features (via the ID) should be shown underneath in a tabular view. If it is possible the values should be changeable.


So is this possible to achieve with ArcGIS and Python?


Thanks for your help and sorry for my English.
