Create a line item from Item and attach to order

Hi, So I managed to follow along the api docs to get categories and items but one issue I am having is determining how to create a line item from an item. Do i have to do an api call or do I just simply create a new line item instance in code and copy the properties over from item to line item. Also how can I attach modifiers to line items.

All of our apps use custom line items BUT it looks to be pretty simple to to attach an inventory item. Just copy the properties (price, description etc) and add the item reference in the json body;
  "item": {
    "id": "[itemId]"
  }
It's probably worthwhile trying without copying the inventory item properties just in case the API automatically does it for you. Probably wishful thinking though!
Similarly with modifiers- simply at the reference;
  "modifier": {
    "id": "[modifierId]"
  }
