I used PMX and so it's quite easy. And you can do much more :-)

I don't know exactly what you want but it could be the same as I

Yes... I think it could be enough to make a simple interface with
an editor where you type in your lilypond code. The interface
has just to show something like denemo does. It doesn't need to
accept input.
