The simplest way of doing it is to first apply the patches to compile 
FFmpeg with libavfilter, see this howto: 

Then you should try to understand how the overlay filter (vf_overlay.c) 
work. To do that, you should use the documentation in the wiki.

Finally, you should use the overlay filter as a template for your own 

About your original question about the AVFrame struct, there are two 
ways data can be set. Either YUV or RGB. The most common case is planar 
YUV (if you don't know what YUV is, ask wikipedia). If you want the 
pixel line x, column y

Y = data[0][x + y*linesize[0]]
U = data[1][x + y*linesize[1]]
V = data[2][x + y*linesize[2]]
