this is not a full solution, but some puzzle pieces you can put together.
There should already be a lot of scripts out there to create a product programattically. Here is just one from inchoo but you can look for others.

What you have to change.

You need to set the random SKU.

$sku = call your method to generate the sku.

And you could add a new product attribute that is a reference to the customer id.

Let's say the attribute is called created_by_customer_id.

You will have to get the customer id from the session and set it on the product before calling save.

$customerId = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomerId();

And to display the products in the customer account you need to add a new menu item to account navigation.

And in the controller action that is linked to the menu can load a block that gets the products collection associated to the current user.

public function getCustomerProducts() 
    $customerId = Mage::getSingleton('customer/session')->getCustomerId();
    $products = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->getCollection()
         ->addAttributeToFilter('created_by_customer_id', $customerId);
    return $products;

The template is up to you.
You can just loop through the products:

<?php foreach ($this->getCustomerProducts() as $product) :?>
    <!-- your html here -->
<?php endforeach;?>
