The only way to do this is to build your own custom plugin. Honestly, it's an extremely complicated task that will involve several hundred, if not 1000, lines of code. Unless you have some compelling reason to hand code the plugin, I would recommend just using a plugin. If you really want to write the plugin yourself, then I suggest downloading a few of the plugins that have already been built, study them and then use them as a starting point.
