Approach this from a Python-scripting point-of-view: Start by 
enumerating a set of things you want to be able to do via scripting, 
then figure out their corresponding API in C++ and wrap that. The 
boost.python tutorial will hopefully be of help:


Once this is done, refine.

In any case, this is indeed the task for someone with a medium - strong 
programming background. I'm certainly not the one to ask where you can 
find those in your team.
