I don't know of any formal resources other than the help page. I worked
out about panel functions by experimenting with functions of the form
  panel=function(...) print(...)

I would use the subscripts=TRUE argument to xyplot. Then your panel
function will receive an argument named subscripts, which indicates which
rows of your data are being plotted in this panel. For example, something

xyplot ( yg~xg | g, subscripts=TRUE, panel=function(x,y,subscripts,...) {
  thisPanel <- unique(g[subscripts])
  fit <- lm(y~x and something involving thisPanel)
