How to address specific field in SAP via external software?

Good day! I'm new here although I use SAP for years but just as a user. Just recently I started development of few small programs and one bigger one and I got to the point where I need a real-time connection to SAP and extracting data from some fields. The connection is kind of understood - there is plenty of information on internet. Both in VBA and via JCo I believe I'll handle it and I'll receive the required permissions. The problem is then what... How to address a specific filed? Direct example: I need my software to extract the data in Field "PO Number" in transaction VA03 from order NNNNNN. On other occasion I'll need that specific NNNNNN order number via the document flow from VL03N and a delivery number. I'm sure there would be different syntax on different languages but the target should be the same. Or at least I'll understand the logic.
