You know that you can change ownership (be aware that there are
two completely different types of ownership!) and permissions
via the ZMI. Looking at respective the ZMI source will
tell you which methods are used (this is a general approach
for anything that can be done in the ZMI).
In your special case, you can look at the methods defined
in "AccessControl/Owned.py" (executable ownership control),
"AccessControl/Role.py" (local role control, among others the
local role "Owner"; and role permission mapping).
