What do you mean by perpetual ? 
Sorry - english is my second language

> Do you want 366 single sided A5 pages, Jan 1->Dec 31

Yes. Well - to have it in nice format I want to have 2 days printed on
A4 paper, which after cutting will give A5 format. 
All days. Actually January is gone so it can start on Feb or even March.
Printed both sides.

> Do you want double sided (183 pages)

Yes. That's the issue because days needs to follow - one after another
after everything will be printed and bonded together. So there needs to
be special order of days on page A4. After cutting I need to be able to
put it together.

> And what information do you want on each page (Day and Month?)

I need 50% space from top for meetings and objectives. There are going
to be hours from 06:00 until 22:00 on left. and on right side

Under it remaining 50% of space will be separated in half (25% and 25%)
and there are going to be two more panels.

On top of page day, month, year. that will take max 5% rectangle

I was wondering if there will be a chance to write a script which will
allow me to put pages in order for print. Everything else I can design
as I have some small experience with Photoshop, Gimp, inkscape...

Yes. I was thinking of something like that as well. Probably 7 days (not
even) will be hard to match on page cut in 2 (even).
Saturday and Sunday can go on one page half half like in many calendars
on the market. That will solve problem
