Although there are good documentation resources around, I would like to ask two beginner-questions:

I personally write my own wrappers, but if the amount of existing code you need to interface is huge, this may not be an option.

You can take a look here:

for a few pointers.

What do you mean by "exit" statements?
Does your scripts call functions like os.exit and the like? If so, you can simply replace the offending functions with empty ones before calling those scripts, either with Lua:
  os.exit = function() end

or with C.
