I don't know so much about these advanced features of djvu.
The ImageMagick support works like any other image support in Emacs. If
you've configured it to be used you can for example open an image in a
buffer from dired. Emacs image functions also support opening a
particular image in a djvm container but because of limitations in
imagemagick it doesn't work too well.
My usecase is scanning a lot of pages and converting each page to djvu,
and then to the djvm container. I have an emacs package called "emsane"
on github for this. I've been meaning to implement ocr with ocropus and
somehow create the djvu text layer that way but I haven't gotten around
Can you explain what you mean with highlighting? There are lots of
things you can do in Emacs. For instance I have a trivial example called
dragbox.el on github which makes it possible to interactively create a
rectangular overlay on an image. The region can then be extracted and ocr:ed.
