Creating software installer with additional options

Hello,
I have my own program written in Delphi 7. I would like to create installer for it with additional checkboxes for addons (babylon toolbar for example) But I have no idea what software to use to create installer with those addons. So basically can anyone guide me to the article where I could learn how to create installers with additional options? also what installer creation software to use?
I've also got these parameters from affiliate manager, so I need to insert those to installer somehow. here is what he gave me:

Here you can find a link to the Toolbar Exe file:
Location: Babylon toolbar EXE link 7318 (MyBabylonTB.exe)
We have one new parameter we believe is important to add.
Even before the toolbar's offer screen is presented to the user, your setup will start to run the Babylon installation file with the argument –dlonly.
The idea is to have Babylon start download the relevant files in advanced and when the user chooses to take the toolbar č we are ready to go…
This will make the installation process faster and should help with the take rate.

Here are the command line parameters (key sensitive):
/aflt=babsst [mandatory]
/babTrack="affID= 112151" [mandatory]
/srcExt=ss [mandatory]
/instlRef=sst [mandatory]
/S .......... Silent install [mandatory]
/mhp /mnt .......... set home page (based on user selection)
/mds .......... set search provider (based on user selection)
The below lines are mandatory and need to be added for these specific situations:
- If the end user Unchecks the "toolbar installation" but keeps the Home Page and Search Provider checked than the –notb switch should be concatenated to the command string.
- When the end user checks the "revert" option the /rvt switch should be concatenated to the command string.
o The feature designed to "remember" the original HP of the customer before we take his HP therefore, during the uninstall it gives him the option to get back to what he had berfore…
o The "Revert" option during install process will be active during uninstall, ONLY if installation includes the Babylon client inside the package (packages with Babylon toolbar only shouldn't use this option).

Babylon’s toolbar EULA will appear at this link: babylon EULA URL=babylon_toolbar_eula
Please help me understand all of this. Million thanks in advance people.
