Why not just use Glance CLI this guide may assist

# glance help image-update
usage: glance image-update [--name <NAME>] [--disk-format <DISK_FORMAT>]
                           [--container-format <CONTAINER_FORMAT>]
                           [--owner <TENANT_ID>] [--size <SIZE>]
                           [--min-disk <DISK_GB>] [--min-ram <DISK_RAM>]
                           [--location <IMAGE_URL>] [--file <FILE>]
                           [--checksum <CHECKSUM>] [--copy-from <IMAGE_URL>]
                           [--is-public {True,False}]
                           [--is-protected {True,False}]
                           [--property <key=value>] [--purge-props]
                           [--human-readable] [--progress]

Update a specific image.

Positional arguments:
  <IMAGE>               Name or ID of image to modify.

Optional arguments:
  --name <NAME>         Name of image.
  --disk-format <DISK_FORMAT>
                        Disk format of image. Acceptable formats: ami, ari,
                        aki, vhd, vmdk, raw, qcow2, vdi, and iso.
  --container-format <CONTAINER_FORMAT>
                        Container format of image. Acceptable formats: ami,
                        ari, aki, bare, and ovf.
  --owner <TENANT_ID>   Tenant who should own image.
  --size <SIZE>         Size of image data (in bytes).
  --min-disk <DISK_GB>  Minimum size of disk needed to boot image (in
  --min-ram <DISK_RAM>  Minimum amount of ram needed to boot image (in
  --location <IMAGE_URL>
                        URL where the data for this image already resides. For
                        example, if the image data is stored in swift, you
                        could specify 'swift+http://tenant%3Aaccount:key@auth_
                        url/v2.0/container/obj'. (Note: '%3A' is ':' URL
  --file <FILE>         Local file that contains disk image to be uploaded
                        during update. Alternatively, images can be passed to
                        the client via stdin.
  --checksum <CHECKSUM>
                        Hash of image data used Glance can use for
  --copy-from <IMAGE_URL>
                        Similar to '--location' in usage, but this indicates
                        that the Glance server should immediately copy the
                        data and store it in its configured image store.
  --is-public {True,False}
                        Make image accessible to the public.
  --is-protected {True,False}
                        Prevent image from being deleted.
  --property <key=value>
                        Arbitrary property to associate with image. May be
                        used multiple times.
  --purge-props         If this flag is present, delete all image properties
                        not explicitly set in the update request. Otherwise,
                        those properties not referenced are preserved.
  --human-readable      Print image size in a human-friendly format.
  --progress            Show upload progress bar.

No. there are some functions needs to be tested right now they are not available in CLI nor in horizon.

If the glance api documentation is correct, it's currently not possible to directly update an image if it's not in "queued" state. (glance api documentation > update an image):

If an image was previously reserved, and thus is in the queued state, then image data can be added by including it as the request body. If the image already has data associated with it (e.g. not in the queued state), then including a request body will result in a 409 Conflict exception.

But as mention in (this answer), you can use the glance CLI with the --debug option to check which API calls are made.
