So, you mean the image on the left ? The one on the right is pretty simple.
Cut the unwanted parts please.

Or write better english. Or in french :)

For the image on the left, search for fisheye opengl projection.
The method :
- render scene to texture
- render a textured grid with it, and distord it like you need
- for wide angles, render the scene multiple times, in a cubic arrangement.

Have you looked at these tutorials?

I know they don't teach you how to *exactly* draw what's in the right window. But they teach you to draw 3D things. If you understand them, you'll probably be able to figure out the rest yourself.

When learning something, you have to start with the basics. Once you understand how to draw simple things like polygons and cubes, drawing more complex things won't be much harder.

Drawing that window is simply a matter of drawing 15 GL_LINES (if you don't mind transparency), or 17 GL_QUADS.

The "large" sides will each need to be represented by four quads since there's no way to subtract one quad from another.

Well, you obwiously have a problem with your geometrical imagination :) This object are just four boxes, placed in such a way that a window appears. Try to draw it on a sheet of paper and think how it can be decomposed into triangles - then feed this triangles to OpenGL (you said you knew how).
