complex path planning in ROS

My goal is to have a motoman arm pick up a salad bowl and manipulate it into a bunch of predetermined configurations in space.

This is what I kind of had in mind. Where would I start to go about complex path planning and object manipulation in ROS? Can I make an object that the robot is holding "trace" or follow a predetermined trajectory? Pick/place programs result in a bunch of weird and twisty trajectories and I would like the motoman to move as efficiently as possible.

I'm new to ROS, so thanks for any tips in advance
