I want to control play/resume for audio stream. I think that using client apis it is not possible. I can only mute/unmute the stream but cannot pause/resume it back.

Best regards

Out-of-tree modules are currently indeed impossible to develop.

Please think, however, whether you need a module at all. In many cases, 
a PulseAudio module is not necessary. If you need some signal 
processing, please write a LADSPA plugin instead, and load 
module-ladspa-sink. If you want to output audio to some non-standard 
network protocol, please write an ALSA plugin that speaks this protocol, 
and a management daemon that discovers targets and loads 
module-alsa-sink. I am sure similar solutions exist for other use cases, 

Or, you can contribute the module if you think that it is of general
