Using Geoprocessing API to convert Feature Class to Shapefile

Can anyone explain to me how I can use the Geoprocessing API to export a feature class in the currently open map as a shapefile feature class? For one the Geoprocessing calls require a tool name, which is just a string, and I'm not sure where I'd find this information. 


I'd also like to know what functions I should call to get symbology definitions for said feature class.


Basically in my add-in I want to the user to be able to select a layer in the current map via some tree view (which I already have working), and then they can click Export which will export said layer as a shapefile with associated symbology. I had this working with ArcObjects but I'm not sure how it is done with ArcGIS Pro.
