As Gary mentioned you'll need to have a server side script process the upload file and stream the resulting SWF back to the Flash/Flex app. As for the 'command-line', yes the 'terminal' is the equivalent in the Mac world. Your developer should be able to whip that up without too much effort (at least a POC - proof of concept anyways).
I am using pdf2swf for this purpose (i.e. conversion of PDF to SWF on the fly for display on a webpage). Basically you are going to need to be able to execute pdf2swf from within your webcode (PHP for me) – you will need quite chunky permissions from your web host (possibly a dedicated server).

I would recommend searching through the mailing archives and looking at the examples on swftools.org. Also the command line help is pretty straight-forward and conversion is a snap!
A straight call to 'pdf2swf' will print the help, and calling pdf2swf -s help will show additional paramters.
What kind of examples are you looking for? Usually the mailing list is littered with example command lines etc.
Best of luck!
I can’t seem to find any examples or
samples of how I could use pdftoswf on the web.
