Can someone tell me the best way to add data points into an existing mxd document within a python script.

I can create a feature set with the points in python but do not know if I should create an xy event layer, or an in memory layer and then add it to the mxd then symbolize and label the points somehow for display on the map output.  The documentation on this seems limited and I have tried several times but cannot get anything to add to the mxd document in python.  Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
