This is the right place for this type of questions.

There is a lot of difference among the C part and the Lisp part. Even on
the C part there are areas of varying difficulty (the redisplay engine
is famous for its complexity.) IMHO best thing to do is to start by
becoming proficient with Emacs Lisp (use the Emacs Lisp info pages) and
then focus on a specific set of features and start fixing bugs on it.
