You are entering the realm of what is called orchestration or configuration management.
I don't think there is a "simple script" do do what you want.
On the other hand, last-generation configuration management tools like SaltStack and Ansible allow to do exactly that, and way more. You could even take a additional step back and provision the VM with APIs like OpenStack, but probably it would be over engineering for your use case.
Since we are functional :-), an alternative approach (not exactly the same thing) is http://nixos.org/ and http://nixos.org/nix/, which should really excite any Erlanger :-)
