Not sure there are tutorials out there about how to use ModemManager,
truth be told.

I'd suggest you first understand how DBus works (what services are,
what clients are...) I gave a talk a while back about this:

And then look at the ModemManager DBus API here:

If you specifically want a tutorial on how ModemManager and
NetworkManager interact, that's nowhere explained but in the source
code of NetworkManager I guess.
