Just an idea, but it might help if you show up some examples.

Take some code from your project - interface code and your scripts.
Write equivalent lua code and lua interface code (yep, that's quite some work).

Compare both. I would bet that lua wins this compare since it has really a great API on integrating stuff and the lua syntax itself is really well designed.
As a data point, we implemented the interfaces we need to allow simple control of our software tools from Lua in a few hours. It really wasn't hard. We used the Red/Blue Pil book and also looked at the Lua source code a bit.

On a few occasions we've needed help and asked on this list. There are people here that can and will help you.
