Writing a toxcore implementation for a class project is quite ambitious, I
hope you know what you are in for.
There is toxcore documentation <https://github.com/Tox-Docs/Text> you can
refer to. It's a bit sloppy and in plain text files, but it's planned to
reformat them as pdfs at some point.

As far as DHT nodes go, you can try speaking to the ones from
https://nodes.tox.chat/ list or host your own
though it might be easier to just run a Tox client instead of a DHT
bootstrap node, as any Tox client is also a DHT node.

This wireshark plugin that shows Tox DHT traffic
<https://github.com/cleverca22/tox_decoder> might be of some help to you.
You'd need to patch toxcore so that it would expose private keys, so that
the plugin could decrypt the traffic and show it to you in Wireshark nicely.
