My goal for a script

Here's what I'm trying to accomplish.

The scene has an animation with many cameras observing it.

1. Goal is to stop the animation and then fly around scene stopping at selected camera vantage points and then moving on to the next selected camera location.

A. Copy the animated objects , unlink, delete keyframes, rename animated items with frame number prefix and place them on a unique layer.
B. Create a camera that copies selected scene camera Positions angles target etc at the selected frame and creates keyframes to fly around the scene. ( is a good start)

2. Create plan view of selected cameras and create polygon shapes that describe the area the camera actually is able to see the object of interest. ( works)

I've been asking questions about A. and is as far as I got.

thanks for taking a look
