I think you're unlikely to find someone who will build you a product for 
no reward. If you are looking for a consultant to help you, check out 

Otherwise, if you want to build it yourself, I recommend you look at 
http://plone.org/documentation/tutorial/buildout for a guide to creating 
a new product.

There are other documents on creating new portlets, if that's what you 
want to use to display the output of the web service.

Beyond that, you need to figure out how to use the web service in 
question. Is it using REST? SOAP? XML-RPC? Something else? Find a Python 
client library that can consume the required service, and then connect 
it up to the web service according to its documentation.
