Here is a link to the Xen API documentation: http://docs.vmd.citrix.com/XenServer/5.6.0fp1/1.0/en_gb/api/ . It is a XML-RPC based API, so you can use whatever language you like to interface with it, though most people seem to prefer the Python bindings that ship with XCP and XenServer. And yes, the Xen API handles both (1) and (2).
