Assuming the third party API uses a DLL, you will need to prototype the functions in the declarations section of your LotusScript.  For example:

The following is a function declaration to access the GetPrivateProfileString function from the Win32API

Public Declare Function GetPrivateProfileString Lib "kernel32" Alias "GetPrivateProfileStringA" (ByVal lpApplicationName As String, ByVal lpKeyName As Any, ByVal lpDefault As String, ByVal lpReturnedString As String, ByVal nSize As Long, ByVal lpFileName As String) As Long

If you are familiar with VB, you will see that the function prototypes are the same as if you were declaring them in VB with a few exceptions.  Try it out.
