You'd need an event receiver for this because you'd need to hook into the upload event. SPServices isn't going to help here.

Maybe this helps.

I had this same need a few years ago which led me to create a Widget library. Take a look at SPControlUpload of SPWidgets - here: http://purtuga.github.io/SPWidgets/
The widget allows you to upload a file to a document library and has a way for you to "catch" the Check In form and populate it with data. Or: update the file record in the doc lib. via UpdateListItems after it's uploaded.

Good luck.
