Extensions API - how to create custom 'form' send action

Hi fellow developers,
This is my first post here. I've searched the forums and the web throughly, but couldn't find a proper answer.
I'm looking to create an extension for the HubSpot CRM. An important feature is being able to send a custom text message from within HubSpot to my integrations' API.
So what it should look like:
- On a contact page, click a button to open a form-type window.
- Type in message, click done/send.
- The message gets sent to the API.
On the CRM Extensions API Overview page, I only see a static action, without any UI or custom field options, or an iFrame action. Obviously, I could build my own form somewhere else, and use the iFrame action, but this isn't ideal.
On the App marketplace, I see other developers have managed to integrate this exact feature. So I was wondering how they might've done this. Here's what I'm talking about:
The video there shows that upon the click of a button, the exact kind of form view I'm looking for pops up, within the HubSpot interface. Any ideas on how to implement this myself?
Thanks in advance,
