Incorporating a WYSIWYG Editor into your Wolf CMS Plugin

I recently completed a project for a client that ran on Wolf CMS which is based on Frog CMS. For this project I had to code several plugins from scratch to achieve varying goals.

There are several available for editing of pages including TinyMCE, Markdown text filter and the Textile text filter. Now how exactly to use and incorporate these in your plugin?
