RESTful or SOAP API - Create a project with Scheme and field configuration?

We are trying to create a project in JIRA using SOAP/RESTful API. We are using Soap: CreateProject() but need to also set the following project information:

1. Issue Type Scheme

2. Workflow Scheme

3. Screens Scheme

4. Field Configuration

Q1: Is there a way to do this via SOAP/REST API?

Q2: If there is no SOAP/REST API support for this, then what are the other options to programmatically create Projects in JIRA or to update the configurations listed above?

Note that this issue is similar to the one posted by the link below:

JIRA Command Line Interface has the createProject action. It combines a number of approaches to get everything done.
