I don't think I'd want to take on the whole project if the list is
that large, especially since I don't use or have any interest in voice
files but I'd be willing to do some, maybe a third. Perhaps 2-3 other
volunteers could come forward and we could divide up the project.

Breaking a stream into individual files and removing the quiet time
would not be difficult. There are several utilities that will do
that, especially if you left 2-3 seconds of quiet between each phrase.
What's left? Normalizing the level, maybe a little dynamic range
compression, probably. Converting to the correct file names. What
else.
