I'd like to display an image of a world map in a seperate window. I'd like it divided into 3,450,000 individual cells which I can zoom into to click on. I then want it to calculate my distance from that object and in what direction. I can determine my own position through the use of an in-game item.

I'd also like it to take my positon from that object when I log in and place a cursor on top of the map to represent me, and whenever I use a direction i'd like it to either increase or decrease my position (which is set into an X/Y system) so my cursor updates as I move.

It's simple enough to keep my position in the world up to date, just set up variables that are updates whenever the alias for N S E W etc are pressed, it's the complicated image I have trouble with.

Not impossible, just highly improbable :p

Indeed, much of that - the interface at least - is a considerable portion of making your own game to begin with. The size of your world - 3 million cells - and the zoom ability in particular have me worried.
