1) You can take a look at this link https://www.simple-talk.com/sql/t-sql-programming/sql-server-excel-workbench/
2) You can create it via SSIS package and execute the package from ssms.

I doubt there is an "elegant" way to do this via TSQL.

You might be better off trying the SQL CLR, I would imagine you could code against the Excel Object Model with it.

Here is an outline of a simple method which does not require Excel to be installed:

1. Copy a blank worksheet on to your SQL Server called YourTemplateWorksheet.XLSX
2. EXEC xp_cmdshell 'COPY C:\YourTemplateWorksheet.XLSX C:\YourNewWorksheet.XLSX'

This is over simplified but hopefully you get the idea. You need to run the usual gamut of security issues around xp_cmdshell
