You should definitely be looking after something like m0n0BSD (or my 
miniBSD tutorial) instead of m0n0wall. There's no way we'll ever see 
services like SQL or SMTP in m0n0wall - heaven forbid! It's a firewall 
and thus not supposed to do that, period. I know that not much work has 
been done on m0n0BSD lately, and you'll also lose the GUI, but your 
needs seem to be way too specific to be met by a general-purpose 
package that has everything configured via a web interface. Maybe you 
can use webmin together with mini/m0n0BSD or something...
