Unfortuantely, information about this sort of thing is very hard to get.
It's not an "open" interface.
If you look back through the list archives, someone mentioned some Unix
open-source software for accesing the phone and getting phone numbers
and suchlike out of it. You could work from that. (I previously asked
this question because a few months back I bought a cable to let me hook
up my phone to a serial port. I've not yet had time to play around with
it yet, though.)
Let me answer the rest of your questions to the best of my knowledge:

It's not stable; the functions vary across manufacturers and models.
