I'm happy to post some examples.

We have tutorials at:

And some very poor documentation (my apologies) at:

As I presume you've read all of these, if you need further information, 
I need you to tell me WHAT you need.

If the answer is "all of it" as your statement suggests to me, then that 
represents quite a lot of work digging through source code, testing 
frontends, etc. (the stuff I recommended others could help by doing). I 
don't know all of this information off the top of my head. I didn't 
write all of the filters and I seldom do any frontend work, and that is 
on BibleCS only. So maybe your estimation of my abilities is exaggerated.
