Unfortunately there isn't an up-to-date guide to MD APIs. However, the
addin engine's well-documented at
http://www.mono-project.com/Mono.Addins. There's a guide to getting
started with a development environment:
http://monodevelop.com/Development:_Getting_Started, and I also
suggest looking at look at existing addins (though be careful with GPL

If anything's not clear, or you're not sure how/where to get started
with something, feel free to ask questions here (or
monodevelop-devel-list) and we'll do our best to point you in the
right direction.
