IIR with iRule Help for Home Automation

We have a home small office that we would like to automate through Wifi. It’s 2 separate rooms, total size of space is 20x25; one room is 20x15 and the other 20x10.] 

Current devices we want to automate are: 
- Samsung LED TV BN68-02543F-02 – Room 1 --- IR 
- Sharp LCD TV (IR) – Room 2 --- IR 
- Harman/kardon AVR247 – Room 1 (rests in Media Center Hub in Room 1) --- IR 
- JVC RX-8030V – Room 2 (rests in Media Center Hub in Room 1) --- IR 
- Motorola QIP7232 – Room 1 and 2 (rests in Media Center Hub in Room 1) --- IR 
- Etekcity 6x2 HDMI Matrix Switch/Splitter – Room 1 and 2 (rests in Media Center Hub in Room 1) --- IR 
- Samsung BD-D6500 Blu-ray --- IR 
- Apple TV --- IR 

We want to use an iPad to control all these devices with iRule. We want to be able to do everything the remotes can- is this possible with either remote or are there certain limitations such as maybe using the DVR function? 

Do we need to buy both a Global Cache WF2IR iTach and a Global Cache IP2IR iTach? I've also read that Samsung TVs don't work with IR devices, and that a Global Cache GC-100-12 is needed with an EX-Link cable? Is this true? We want it to be easy setup with the least amount of wires. We'd also want it to be able to work anywhere near the TV, without line-of-sight being an issue, if possible.
