How to target a 802.11 header in a Lua script?

Hello,

I am trying to decode Fine Timing Measurement (FTM, aka 802.11mc for some) frames, and this 802.11 protocol is not supported yet. I started looking at adding a Lua dissector, but this thing seems to be a nightmare. How can I target, in a Lua dissector, an 802.11 frame type (namely public action frame of type 0x20), or a specific 802.11 header field, to add my own type? Thanks!
