It depends on a few things...  first, the kernel drivers having the IDs
for the modems.  In general, NM will support generic modems that use
ATDT-style connection setup (ie, PPP).  It also supports Option
'hso'-style modems that use OWAN-style call setup.

As of 0.7.1, I think we've got support for most of the modems that are
currently in wide use.  We do occasionally find quirks (like Huawei CDMA
modems from Reliance India that return "COMMAND NOT SUPPORT" instead of
"ERROR", for example).

Nope, they are handled automatically in the code.  Scripts aren't really
flexible enough, or if they are, they turn into a programming language
