Little Help with a student...

I am in need of a delet user script. Something very basic and simple. The Items I need it to do are:

0) Change to etc Directory
1) Open password
2) Search for user
3) Delet Line
4) Close file & save script
5) Change directory to home
6) Remove user's directory
7) Check and confirm the directory is empty

Any help would be welcomed. Thanks.....
