Also, should I begin with a similar approach first write an independent C file to convert infix notation to postfix and then proceed with integrating it in the library ?

In task #13574 a program to do image arithmetic was created (ImageArithmetic). But to be simply implemented it uses the postfix or reverse polish notation. Therefore as explained in that task, it is important for easy usability that it change the notation to the Infix notation where the operators are placed between the operands and it includes parenthesis. As explained in that task, a good way to do this might be through the Shuntingyard algorithm which translates infix notation to postfix notation which ImageArithmetic currently uses:

As you say, this is a feature of the infix notation, so it doesn't yet exist ;).
Currently Arithmetic only works in reverse polish notation and only has the tools for that. Its up to you to define it for your implementation of the infix notation ;).
