I need to modify the Site Settings page in a site collection to include an extra link. How can I go about doing this using c#?

You need to deploy a custom action in a feature that looks like this:

<Elements xmlns=""> 
     Title="Display text for your link"> 
    <UrlAction Url="link to your page" /> 

Read Custom Action Schema for GroupId and Location values.

No need for C# code, it can be done declaratively with custom actions through a feature.

Check details on MSDN.
