Any libdwarf.h you see was written by 'someone', it is not a formal part of
the DWARF2/3/4 standards.     

readelf  (gnu binutils) and dwarfdump (which I support, just google 
dwarfdump)
can do what you ask (assuming I really understand your questions).  Both
are available free in C source.   Whether either is 'simple' is  another 
question.
Each is 'as simple as possible' in some sense(?).

Since you surely know that  I rather doubt I understand your questions!
