Hello :)

The following document is a good place to start when developing a plugin:

SDK - Guide to cPanel Plugins

It doesn't necessarily have to be coded in Perl. Other scripting languages such as PHP are supported. You can search for "cPanel Plugin" in our developer's forum to see several threads with examples. As far as hiding the source code, the following document is a bit dated but should help answer your question:

perlfaq3 - perldoc.perl.org

Thank you.
