Is it actually possible for android devices to be somehow setup or
managed by an institution in bulk?

For example, even if PokeDL was available in the Play Store, do you know
if there's a way to preset the app settings for you server directly
during install?

I unfortunately have no experience with this. It's just that asking 
users to allow unsigned apps to get this is not very appealing, and not 
something I'd recommend to non experienced users.

I'm personally opposed to the Play Store, and to the entire
Google/PlayStore ecosystem in general.

However, if some other Android developer that has already experience
with the play store wants to step in and help us, I will not oppose it.
I understand the convenience.
