Don't You have the start and stop scripts that come along with apache?
Otherwise, take a look at the service start/stop scripts that reside in /etc/init.d/ (or where Your distro puts them) and just copy and modify one.

In your other scripting needs, take a look at linuxcommand.org if you have time.
