The gtk API documentation is good enough in my experience:
If you want to write your own input module you should be looking at the
sources also.

Input widgets create an instance of GtkIMMulticontext, which is basically
the menu popping up on right click.
I think you will have to add the hotkey support to all input widgets.

Maybe you should look at modules/input/imcyrillic-translit.c Should be
pretty easy.

Depends on what you mean by "change". User/admin changes would be editing
If you want to change it from your program, then you will have to
manipulate GtkIMMulticontext and/or the GtkMenuShell it uses.
