You may want to look at gnupg/tools/gpgparsemail.c for a parser.
Building messages is actually more trivial; maybe gpgol/src/mimemaker.c
is of some help. Well, not pseudo code. For pseudo code you should
just read RFC-3156 which has a lot of good examples.

Creating PGP/MIME is really simple.

Depends on whether you want to sign or encrypt. Encrypt is easy; really
easy I mean. It is just a fixed block.

Nope: That is more complicated, you need to read the OpenPGP standard.
Don't even try to come up with your own encryption protocol.

Sending the public key is not common with OpenPGP - You send it out of
band. Only S/MIME resorts to this kludged due to the non-standardized
way of looking up keys (Oh well, unless you use the global X.500
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
