Post subject:  How does MCM work?

I would like to create a plugin that allows language selection. What I would like to be able to do is change the language setting for individual items (currently movies will be easiest for me given the template). The idea is to keep the English tittle for searching, but by changing the language, it would download the non English cover, along with non English description.

However, before learning how to do this, I wanted to check whether it was possible.
I'm sure I can modify the code of the fetcher to fetch based upon different language types. This seems easy enough.

However, I don't really understand how MCM works. My current idea is to effectively run the custom fetcher to force a refetch. My understanding if the tittle is in English, it'll search based upon ID. Therefore if a append a different langauge to the API, it'll return the different language.

As an extension, if the < language > tag was set in the metadata, would MCM be able to read the ID and language from the metadata and do a forced refetch?
