Is the amount of detail data on the last page always the same? If not, what if there isn't room for the summary data?
This can all be done with the compound report tool (PDF Layout Painter, I think it's called now) or just in the code by controlling the overflow and/or use of BREAK/NOBREAK syntax. The shadow box can also be accomplished a couple of different ways, using inclusion and proper placement of images and/or lines.
Without any more detail or examples, it's harder to get much more specific other than to say it all sounds do-able.

How about placing the summary report on the first page, would that be acceptable?
If you put it on the last page and it is not allowed to place it on a separate page, what happens if the last page has not enough place to hold the summary.
We have a saying here in the Netherlands that is:
"One lunatic can ask more than 10 very wise man can answer."
Sometimes the end users act like that.
Who said sometimes.....

Jodye Yates came up with a workable styling for drawing lines in PDF. You can find it in this post
He also wrote an article for the Tips and techniques pages that calculates the length of the line depending upon data to be included within the report, here
. It might serve to spark a few ideas of your own on how to calculate the positioning that you require?

The following does not seem to be documented anywhere but it works with WF713. This may help you with what you are trying to do.
Use the following code to see how to control BOXes.
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM RCOST DCOST
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOPAGE
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT PDF
ON TABLE SET STYLESHEET *
TYPE=REPORT, COLUMN=COUNTRY, WRAP=1.00,$
TYPE=REPORT, COLUMN=CAR , WRAP=1.00,$
TYPE=REPORT, COLUMN=RCOST , WRAP=1.25,$
TYPE=REPORT, COLUMN=DCOST , WRAP=1.25,$
TYPE=REPORT, NAME='BOX001', OBJECT=BOX, POSITION=(0.200 0.400),
BACKCOLOR=RGB(212 212 212),$
TYPE=REPORT, NAME='BOX002', OBJECT=BOX, POSITION=(1.40 0.425),
TYPE=REPORT, NAME='BOX003', OBJECT=BOX, POSITION=(2.70 0.425),

The following also seem to work:
OBJECT= LINE and OBJECT=IMAGE
