Show page count in folders

I've tried this in other PS forums and gotten nothing helpful. Apologies if you've seen it elsewhere, but I'm still seeking a solution.

I do work as a translator and proofreader, and I regularly need to add up page counts in the documents I’ve worked on. I have all such work in a folder with numerous subfolders, but I also use things like DropBox, Box, Mega, pCloud and others to store such work. That means I can need to open the folders or documents on numerous different computers.

It is possible to manually add page count to the list of displayed properties in a folder, but it is a monumental pain in the fundament to have to do so for every folder on every computer, especially since that manual setting does not always stay put.

Is it possible to do this with PowerShell? I would like to put such a script into the root folder, run it and have ALL subfolders modified to show page counts. I’ve used both PS and VBS to do all sorts of automated tasks, but I haven’t found any way to do this, with either one. I would also like to make the page count be the second column in the display, instead of at the right-hand end, and then manually have to move it to the left.
