How to send and receive messages using ERTS.

I'm having questions related with some ERTS issues:
1) Where I can find a sample, how to handle ErlMessage and receive
information from them. As sample, if I'm expecting to receive something
like {pid, atom, number, sting}, how to extract pid, atom, number and
string from the ErlMessage. 
2) At the time, as I wants to create pid using SELF(sockfd) macros (from
the 1.2 Erl_Interface library). What is sockfd? Which socket file
descriptor I should use if I wants to send messages like {sender pid,
atom, number, string} from C program.
3) How to return messages to C program, which invokes erl_receive_msg.
Which operations I should perform before erl_receive_msg ? 

Thank you for assistance .
