Your question is quite ambiguous.  Are you asking about the science 
necessary for that extension, or about the politics to get your changes 
into glmnet, or about the programming needed to do it?

I can't help you with the first, but for the second two, you should 
contact the maintainer of the package first.  You would proceed 
differently if you are modifying the package than if you are trying to 
write your own package to enhance it.
