All can be done using the COM interface, you need to get an idea about the InDesign DOM and then you can stitch together your business logic alongwith operations within InDesign. As a start see the JS sdk interface to get an idea about InDesign DOM, COM interface will have equivalent methods, properties, see the following

The is no such sdk for catalog development that Adobe has released for InDesign. InDesign DOM can be accessed via either the native C++ sdk or via the COM interface. For .net you can use the COM interface, i found a prior discussion on this round that might help you

Thanks Manan 

I have also found it on the internet. With the help of this code I can read and write data from a text frame. But, my main purpose is to create a product catalogue with price. So in that case how to set images, resize the image to the document.

Are you looking to do thus on a server? Who is the catalogue delivered to (in general terms)? Why InDesign?
