I would like to obtain the value string for a specific value manually (to display it in the COL_INFO column) by it's value. I could manually iterate over my value string mapping, however I think there might also be an official API for this task.

There are several functions doing the dirty work for you. Look at the content of epan/value_strings.h and pick the one fitting your needs.
