Can I get some python gurus here to help me out with this tool?

I built a model that extracts selected attributes from my TCAD feature layer using a polygon feature. I am looking for a way to convert this model to a functional tool through python scripting. The requirement is that when the tool is run, it will prompt the user to enter the polygon feature (any polygon feature that is within the TCAD coverage); the tool will also  prompt the user to select the needed attributes from the TCAD layer feature.


So far my model is pretty much functioning manually but I would really want it to be more automated.

I have tried to export my model to a python script and tried modifying it but so far there has been no success, thus I am here to seek for help with this.

Please see my model and script below and I would really appreciate if I can get help with this here.
