Like any unfamiliar piece of software Scribus requires some study.  You 
don't need to use a script if I understand your requirements.  Just draw a 
text box, fill it, adjust it , then draw an image box, fill it,  adjust it 
and so on. For both types of frames right click to get to a detailed menu 
for that frame, as I have previously mentioned. Once you get the feel of it 
putting together a Scribus document is very fast.  I am still learning but 
I find it an excellent tool for jobs like yours.
