You have to take a look at the code of the existing maintenance tasks.  
There are no better docs unfortunately.

Probably not at all. There is also the TOS maintenance task that can't  
be skipped, but I don't see how this could be safely integrated with  
setting the identities.

You could use the post_login hook and check the last_login preference  
whether this user has been logged in already.
