Then i would move onto the actual remote, since functions for that already seem to exist in the current web end. I would be able to make an interface that would render nicely on phones and tablets.
I think I have the technical expertise to do a lot of this, but am curious about the particular hook-ins to the WD. For example, is it even possible to tell the WD to start playing a file?
Keen to hear if anyone is able to help, give suggestions or tell me it's impossible

you should be able to start navigation using the remote and then use the web interface to jump around if you want - meaning, have the ability to display the currently played content, even if it wasn't started from the web interface (upnp-cmd should list what is playing). If it's done with upnp-cmd, I expect it would work with UMSP plugins as well.
