Business project management - track milestones


at our company we want to implement a project template for our company which produces custom automation machines.

It should cover following project milestones (only the first 3 are described to simplify our requirements):

  1. start
    create the project in JIRA, select users by their roles (roles are same for each project, they could be covered by JIRA user management groups). Those users will be notified throughout the project life, when milestones they ought to be interested in are reached/approached.
    Also a space in Confluence should be created automatically for the project, which will be used
  2. kickoff meeting
    after the meeting a project role (e.g. PM) should be notified/offered to create a document in Confluence (predefined template) - e.g. the user will be redirected to appropriate Confluence's space and a predefined 'kickoff' template will be loaded without the PM having to look for it. 
    - assign (automatically created) (sub)tasks to responsible people (mechanical designer, electrical designer) - to create their documents 
  3. design review
    same like #2, specified Confluence template will be offered to a user responsible for when this milestone is reached
  4. documentation ...
  5. design...
  6. production...
  7. verification...

I am planning on creating a custom project template (with Atlassian SDK, plugin development) and an issue workflow where statuses would be the milestones. The project would only have one issue with this workflow.

Would it be then possible to display different fields / buttons on the issue during different stages (statuses) of the project (JIRA issue) ?

Also it is very important, that some of the milestones be planned for specific dates which will be specified at the JIRA project creation (and possible to be changed later). 

Thank you very much for any ideas, suggestions!
