How can I add a custom product to a shopping trolley with an API hit?

I'm sorry if this is a silly question, but I'm very new to the idea of ODOO. If there is any documentation I should read to help better frame this question, don't hesitate to tell me where it is!

We have the requirement to enable people to buy things from a very large set of options (millions of possibilities) and I would like to know if it is possible for a separate program to make an API hit to the ODOO eCommerce system to create a "custom" variant of a product (with a dynamically determined price) and have that added to the customer's trolley?

One example might be that I'm selling cakes with custom writing on it. In this fictitious example only an expert external system can know what the charge for lettering is going to be. I'd like an external system to add this item to the trolley.

Is this possible?

I presume that it's a question of knowing what the object model is, and then creating the appropriate objects?

...looking around some more, it seems that there are some good examples in here: https://www.odoo.com/documentation/9.0/howtos/web.html
