I am unaware of any complete cPanel CLI guide..but cPanel itself states that we can manage only 98% of WHM functionality via CLI.

Command Line Scripts | cPanel, Inc.

You can find most of the CLI / script under /scrits , /usr/local/cpanel/bin

PS: Make sure you know what you are doing before executing any scripts.

It would be better to use the API to manage the server, since more WHM functionality would be available using the API. Also, the API is the supported method over using /scripts or running commands using /usr/local/cpanel/bin binaries. Here's our documentation on the API:

cPanel & WHM's SDK

If you end up having questions about the API, please post them in the developers section of the forum:

Thanks!
