IMH emacs is not the right tool for this task. (sleep-for) was just an
idea, I don't use shell in emacs.

Here some tool suggestions for different tasks:

task                          tool

programmed dialogue
with interactive programs     expect

password-less scp             public-key auth. / ssh-agent

accessing remote files        sshfs, tramp, nfs, etc.
