First of all sorry if this isn't the right type of question for here, but I didn't know where else to ask.

I have raspberry pi that I've worked with before (although not that extensively) but I'll soon be moving to a different setup and I was wondering how to implement a variety of requirements.

What I want is somewhat of a hybrid between Raspbian and Raspbmc. Here's a bit of an outline of what I'm looking for.

I have a hard drive with a bunch of music and movies. I want this to be hosted on my local network, but also be able to have videos streamed to a chromecast ( I was looking at a guide here ) and music streamed to bluetooth speakers. It would optimal if this could be done with a nice user interface.

Also, I would like to be able have a small sql database on the rpi that I can manage and access remotely.

I understand this is kinda of a lot, and I'm hoping it's all possible with one device and OS. Please let me know of your suggestions, guides, advice, or if I should take my post somewhere else.

Thanks in advance.

Raspbmc is just Raspbian and kodi, it's already setup up for NAS and SQL, all you have to do is setup the bluetooth.
