I would like to add a caption, to an inserted image in a text

pointer/documentation for me ?

I think captions are just a UI feature. The doc model just stores a text
frame around the image and the image is followed by the caption itself.

(I.e. later it's not possible to reliably detect if some content around
an image in a frame was created by hand or using the captions UI code.)

So you can do the same "manually" using the UNO API. When in doubt, see
what UNO API the ODT import uses to create the doc model based on the
input markup.

yep, insert a Frame, insert a Image in the frame and add a caption

sub InsertIllustrationReference
  oDoc = ThisComponent
  oText = oDoc.getText()
  oViewCursor = oDoc.getCurrentController().getViewCursor()

  oReference = oDoc.createInstance("")
  With oReference
    .SourceName = "Illustration"
    .ReferenceFieldPart =
    .ReferenceFieldSource =
    .SequenceNumber = 0
  End With

  oText.insertTextContent(oViewCursor, oReference, False)
end sub
