Likely, you don't need to think about Tramp at all. When you operate
with a default-directory pointing to your remote host, Emacs' functions
like `shell', `process-file' and `start-file-process' work on the remote
host. Whether it is Tramp or not, is not relevant.

(Tramp works in the background for you. It requires Tramp 2.1, also part
of Emacs 23)

(let ((default-directory "/su::/"))
  ... do your actions ...
  )
