With 3rd party support for Lyft and IFTTT that obviously use voice commands to function - what is happening in the background to make this possible? There are no public APIs for devs to add their own voice commands to Google Now. So what kind of witchcraft is happening here?

just taking a wild guess here... google teaming up with devs to get stuff supported on android wear before releasing to public?

IFTTT doesn't really have voice command support. The only trigger available for Android Wear it to tap a button. Basically you go in the app and there's buttons for the recipes you want to run.
