Newbie- Python and Fusion

Hello out there! I am brand new to python, but I have been told that I can use python in conjunction with fusion to clip out the points I need from my .las lidar files. I am trying to figure out how to write a Python script that creates a polygon for each of my plots and then invokes the PolyClipData command from Fusion on that polygon to clip out the .LAS files.
What I have now is my shapefile with the plots I am using (300) and a large dataset of lidar files (~800 tiles, 6 billion points).
If anyone can offer any advice on where to go for additional information, then I would be very appreciative. At this point, I am not too sure where to start. Thanks!
