Essentially you've created a fillable form in Word 2007. Correct?
"Developer" tab > "Controls" > "Legacy Tools" > "Legacy Forms" > "Text Form Field" - this is the only fillable control I know of in Word which lets you set a character limit for the control. Once you add the form field you can right click it to set a default entry and a maximum number of characters.
When your form is complete: "Developer" tab > "Protect Document" >"Allow only this type of editing: Filling in Forms" > Start Protection > Add password.
Do not save as a document, save as a template. That way when you're users double-click the template it generates a new copy of the form ready to be completed.
Hope this helps.
