sorry for the not-so-fast reply, but we was attending WNS3 and the Dev meeting.

I'm happy you are interested in this GSOC idea. To my best knowledge there is no current SCTP implementation for ns-3, so you'll have to start from scratch more or les (and this could be an advantage). You can start by looking at how UDP implementation is interacting with lower layers, so I'd go for the src/internet/module folder and he udp-l4-* files.

As for the second question, the best place is the tutorial and the manual (if you're not already "fluent" in ns-3), then move to the internet module and understand how the various L4 layer protocols (TCP and UDP) do interact with the corresponding L3 ones.
