I am not familiar with C# but I think what you looking for is the GHC 
api which allows you to compile haskell expressions at runtime. Look for 
metaplug on hackage 
In its source you ll find an example on how to use the api. You may of 
course use metaplug itself. I must warn you though that the GHC api is 
not the best documented and maintained. Currently (ghc 6.8.1) f.i. it 
seems that reloading modules is broken.
The most official docu is here:
