Here is what I wrote (ages ago, I notice). I don't claim anything great 
about it, but it might give you or someone some ideas.

figflow – Flow text around a fig­ure

Pro­vides a Plain TeX macro \figflow that al­lows one to in­sert a fig­ure into an area in­set into a para­graph. Com­mand ar­gu­ments are width and height of the fig­ure, and the fig­ure (and its cap­tion) it­self. Usage de­tails are to be found in the TeX file it­self.

The pack­age does not work with LaTeX; pack­ages such as wrap­fig, float­flt and picins sup­port the needs of LaTeX users in this area.
