Interfacing with content and media

I'd like to create an extension that imports content, media files, and documents into a Joomla! 1.5x site from an external source. Are there any APIs that I can use to interface with Jooma to do this? Or if not, what's the best starting point, should I hack from com_content and com_media extensions? I haven't done any extension development, have read through the "Mastering Extension Development" book a couple times without noticing any clear guidance on how to interface with content or media, other than the note about editors being the most complex thing you could try to do.

Thanks much for any starting points, resouces, etc.
