The developer's guide, README.developer, README.plugins and README.macos should get you started, and there are plenty of existing plugins available to help you as well, not to mention this site and the Wireshark developer's mailing list.

There is an open bug request for CSG2. Plugin/Dissector code exists, however it is not yet included into the official code, as some requirements did not match and have never been resolved !?!

So, no CSG2 support, until that patch get's included.
