You will need to create a small web service that connects to that database, and when receives a redirect with those parameters prompts the user for username and password and then redirects the user back to Discourse.

Yes!

When using DiscourseConnect we will just redirect every user login to a service you own, so you have 100% control over the whole signup, login, password requirement, group membership, etc.
