There is little documentation as nobody started any work yet :-(. I
think the first thing to consider, is whether it would be easier to
accommodate point 4 as well (upgrade to v3 protocol) at the same time as
adding SSL support by ripping out all the comms code and replacing it
with libpq. I'd really like to hear some opinions on that idea before
anything else is done, as not only would it solve both the current
problems, but it would also future-proof us against future protocol
changes.

The best bet for this one is simply to start looking at the code and try
figuring it out I think - I warn you though, this one is probably not
gonna be easy (though just adding SSL support to the current code is
probably the easiest option).

Some pointers:

V2 FE/BE Protocol:
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.3/static/protocol.html
V3 FE/BE Prococol:
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/static/protocol.html
psqlODBC source code:

Libpq source code:

ibpq/

Regards, Dave.
