Creating LO documents directly would be nice and might have the
advantage to be able to specify some formatting --- which I might need
to do sooner or later.

Formatting is a matter of style, cell styles in this case. Linked import
ranges filled with database data can be prepared with cell styles (I use
document templates for this type of database reports). The formatting
expands/shrinks with the imported data range.

How would I do something like this with CSVs?  I guess I'd need some
sort of "overlay spreadsheet" which defines the formatting and is then
being filled with the data from a CSV file.  The fields in the CSV
remain the same while the number of rows will vary.

Exactly like with any other database. For the formatted output of
database data does not matte if your Base document is connected to csv,
dBase, spreadsheets, Oracle server, MySQL, embedde HSQL or any kind of
ODBC data source.

[Example] Loading CSV into preformatted spreadsheets

File #1 is a csv file.
File #3 is a Base document connected to the csv file, more precisely to
its directory which may contain more csv files.
File #4 is a pre-formatted spreadsheet template with a preformatted
import range.
