The _send functions send a message to the protocol, the _write functions
are for local display.

For example, purple_conv_im_send calls purple_conv_im_write.

If you want to write up some documentation about how this all works we
would be more than happy to accept documentation patches or simply edits
to the wiki to explain this more clearly, we get asked about it with some
frequency (by no means often but often enough that it is noticable).
