What is the best way to allow user inputs in a Confluence page of variable format?

The context/what I currently have: I maintain a set of procedures to be followed by an operator for critical operations (satellite operations). I use a blueprint that I created so that procedures have all the same format ( headers and main sections, steps included in a table). Within sections, format can vary greatly from flow charts to textual steps, to screen shots...

What I want to do: For certain key steps of those procedures, I want to have a check box and an entry field so the operator can check the box when step is done and input a comment on how it went. When the procedure is completed, I need the user to be able to save the inputs (box checked and comments) into another pag, an xls, a PDF or... the format actually does not really matter as long as I have a record of the procedure steps and their statuses for each procedure run.
Also, once saved, I need the procedure to "reset" (all checked box have to be unchecked and text input fields reset to default string or empty). So that next operator starts clean again.

What I have investigated so far: I looked at the Add ons "form for Confluence" and "ConfiFrom" and it seems I can't save the procedure text AND the results of the form in one document. Also those macro are relatively complex for my needs and find them overkilled.

Has anyone ever done something similar? and if so, how?
