Scripting Ideas

Hey guys,
First time posting... First time Max scripting lol.
I was wondering if anyone might have an idea or solution to how I might go about accomplishing this. I will post a screenshot to give you an idea if my words dont explain it well.
Basically what I want to do in a nutshell is have a button that will take a selected object (usually a plane) and once the script is toggled by button it will adjust the edge looping for the plane to have the appropriate spacing.

For instance if I have a plane that is 1' X 1", I want my 10 edges X 40 edges.
The problem is what if the plane that I draw is 4'9" X 8'11" or something random like that. How can I get the size of the object and set the proper edge loop. The main thing is that the spacing between the loops have to be the same no matter what the dimensions of the plane might be.

Here is a picture explanation of what I am asking.

The overall goal from this is simply to set the edge looping no matter what size plane I all the faces and apply a 0'0" 1/64" inset to them then delete the faces. Lastly, I will apply a shell modifier. I am just confused mostly on the first part. I think I could get the rest, I am just confused on the logic behind the first part.

I would appreciate any ideas you folks might have!
Thanks in advance
