I'm not really sure what you are trying to do here, but if its possible to use the XML format of the workbook, the task won't be as hard.  Create a sample workbook, save it as a XML document and then open it up in notepad.  You will see the styles are relatively easy to create.
Then i suggest vba, because otherwise things are going to get more complicated.
Otherwise, there are COM objects out there that you can use.  I don't remember the details of them, but I'm pretty sure I used them at one point (likely from .net).  I tried a quick search, which wasn't what i expected.  Maybe they will help:
