Process http request before send it to the proxy

I’m new to nginx, playing using the api and making some handlers and filters. Now what i would like to do is to

process the request headers, call an external c library, do some work and pass the request to an upstream using proxy_pass.   

I read about http request processing phases and handler priority, but i am a little bit confused.

Should i use a handler or a filter in order to work with proxy_pass?
