Help with some basic actions

Hi all,

I'm trying to build a component that is pretty simple. Essentially, I want to update a properties field associated with any MP3 in the playlist. So, whenever a playlist is loaded or modified (I guess there is some sort of AddItem event that would cover both these cases?), I want to  a) find the file path property associated with the item, and b) then either add or update a properties field (e.g. those fields listed under the Properties tab in a default installation). [clarification edit: properties that are set don't have to be stored anywhere, I just want them available via %var% for the duration the file is in the playlist]

I've got the SDK and tutorials up and running, but I don't know where to go from here. There's a lot of stuff and I'm not sure what is important since documentation is so scant. I'd really appreciate a push in the right direction.
