Although I have a package which I use privately to create documentation,
I have simply published information about how to use various functions
that are built into Mathematica:

Or examine the standard package "DocumentationSearch`".

Their names gave away their functionality - it wasn't a hard job. The
crucial task is to create the special table that lets your symbols
respond to F1 in the same way as the built in symbols.

My impression is that the WB probably actually calls Mathematica to
implement this functionality - otherwise why are these functions present
in Mathematica!

My explorations were sufficient for my needs, and certainly don't cover
the extras you describe, but I think it is highly likely that all those
features are also actually implemented inside Mathematica!
