You can always ask on MODDB and GameDebate. Lots of people that can mod are there. Maybe ask the Almighty Moose for tips. Also, there has to be someone here that knows how to handle those files. Also EnigmaGroup has helped me many times with C programming and the logics behind it. There are probably some other sites with modders resources.
Good luck.
