Python shapefiles, centroids, and CAD

I am trying to write a python script that can draw a polygon or some just some sort of selection square to select shapefiles on ArcMap, then calculate their centroids, add fields for CAD export, and export to AutoCAD. I was thinking of starting out with the ArcMap selection for "Edit Start" and seeing if I can use that to select the shapefiles and go from there.

Does anybody have any other good ideas? Please let me know
