Why not use the SD card slot on the calculator? Use an SD card formatted in FAT 26 or FAT 32 of not too large capacity, say up to 2 GB. Using a computer, transfer the program on the card and store it at the root of the card: DO not store it inside a folder.
Once the program is on the card, remove the card from the computer and insert it in the SD card slot of the calculator. Turn calculator on and use the file explorer of the calculator.
Press Green Left Shift followed by the APPS key to enact the Files explorer. Navigate to the root of the SD card, copy your program and drop it in one of the three internal memories. IRAM, ERAM or FLASH

    Sorry, I am sure you guessed that I meant FAT 16, not FAT 26. Ensure that the batteries are good.

By the time I discovered this question you probably have built the Golden Gate twice over and The Great Wall of China once.
Rather than looking for someone to program your calculator you should visit the archives for the HP48G and look for a program or programs that solve the problems you are dealing with.
Here is the link to the Physics and Civil Engineering page.

Hope you find what you are looking for.
