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:

http://www.dbaileyconsultancy.co.uk/m_documentation/m_documentation.html

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!
