I don't know of a module that can do this.

 

Parts can be done in standard Magento:

 

You can make your own "order status". So, create one that say submitted for approval and integrate it in the workflow.

 

But your problem areas are:

 

  • Magento doesn't have a layered security system. So if a person has access to process orders, you can't revoke that temporarily based on the status of the order.
  • I don't think it's possible to add email templates for custom status changes.

So yes, you'd need an extension. Your best bet would be to find a developer who can do the work. I haven't seen this requested much, so I doubt the market for such an extension would be there.

 

Another option is to find an extension that does parts of your workflow and ask them to code your customizations. Many vendors will customize their module for you.
