Helm looks impressive.

I have a mature completion environment around ido+flx. One of the killer
features is to quickly navigate huge lists of completion candidates. For
instance, while on a git repo a command allows me to locate a versioned
file, typically taking about 2 seconds for a tree containing tens of
thousands of files. The command is very simple to implement (9 lines).

How difficult is to add a new completion command to helm? Such as
providing it with a list of strings and complete on it?

Can helm use other completion matching methods, such as flx? I regard
flx as more convenient than helm's default matching system.
