IMHO, once you've successfully built emacs-xwidget, you could start by
1. (info "(elisp) Writing Emacs Primitives")
2. (info "(elisp) Object Internals")
3. some code in src/lisp.h

This will help you to understand how C types and C functions can be
manipulated on the Elisp side.

After that, you will ready to look at xwidget.[ch] and how xwidget hooks
into the display engine.

Tell me if you have any questions.
