This is really interesting, I first read about it in a book by Harry Mulisch, a famous Dutch writer, but most of his books have been translated into English as well.

He wrote a book called 'The Procedure" (very impressive) in which a Jews rabbi in the ghetto of Prague creates a homunculus from clay by reciting the permutated codes in the Sefer Yetzirah.
It's about the power of the "word".

The book of yatzira is a short text trying to explain the creation
if you want to know something specific just ask

and about the "golem" or homunculus as you called him
its a fictional story created probable by Berthold Auerbach in his book Spinoza from 1837
