Hi Marco,

You're looking for the tool build and show routes.

Galaxy API:
http://galaxy.readthedocs.org/en/master/api_doc.html#galaxy.webapps.galaxy.api.tools.ToolsController.build
http://galaxy.readthedocs.org/en/master/api_doc.html#galaxy.webapps.galaxy.api.tools.ToolsController.show

BioBlend:
http://bioblend.readthedocs.org/en/latest/api_docs/galaxy/all.html#bioblend.galaxy.tools.ToolClient.show_tool

Cheers,
Eric
