I would like to improve the comment editing for user by adding a simple WYSIWYG editor, and I selected CLEditor as possible good candidate because it is light, customizable and jQuery based.

I searched if it already exists a plugin that implement it but I was not able to found any. So I decided to write my own plugin.

Do you have any suggestions about which Wordpress actions or filters should I look to start?

In modern WP all of comment form is produced by extensively hook-able comment_form() function. Also see WordPress Theme Tip: The Comment Form tutorial.

Other than that you will likely need to enqueue scripts.
