How to use CRON job instead of  logic hook?

Hello!

I'm looking to replace my logic hooks and workflows by scheduling jobs. The reason for this is that all of these hooks and workflows would run upon save, heavily impacting performance considering the volume of logic we need. 

It has come to my attention that we can achieve the same logic by scheduling jobs. We want to schedule a job that runs periodically and checks the assigned user id of records. If the user has changed from the last run to someone in Team A, we want to execute logic. 

How would I go about writing this? I'm asking for what programming language I should use and where to store the code. 

Advise Please!

PHP 5.3
Apache (I'll get back to you on that)
