I'm wondering what you want to know... you can do almost everything with 
Nagios - that's described in the license - but, as far as I know, there 
is no shell program included in a typical Nagios system.

If, after modifying the core program, it's ok to still use the name 
Nagios is another question. You'll have to discuss that with Ethan.

But, reading your original mail, I suppose it might be best for you to 
first read and understand the manual and the license and then ask for 
clarifications or help when you encounter specific problems. The points 
you asked are, IMO, both clearly described in the documentation 
available at the project web site and with the source.
