So I'd add a suffix to the verb to indicate the case, person, and number of the object? I had to figure out how to make a polysynthetic language without any help because there little information on them on the internet and almost no polysynthetic conlangs exist. All I could find was basically: polysynthetic languages are highly synthetic.
I'm an Indian enthusiast, and most of my own conlangs are polysynthetic, and grow from the poly languages I know. And you're right, there's damn little information on them out there; you really have to dig.
As for object agreement markers: yeah, create a table of affixes that signify the person, number, gender, etc. of objects, and give these affixes a place in the morphology. There's a lot of freedom here. Mohawk, an Iroquois language, uses fusional markers that encode details of subject and object (e.g., the marker yuk
- indicates 3rd. pers. singular feminine subject and 1st pers. singular object). Cheyenne, an Algonquian language, (usually) uses prefixes to mark subject and suffixes to mark objects.
