Look at what the command pon does:

cush:~$ which pon
cush:~$ cat /usr/bin/pon
if [ -r /etc/ppp.options_out -a -r /etc/ppp.chatscript ]; then
        /usr/sbin/pppd connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp.chatscript" `cat /etc/ppp.options_out`
        echo "You do not have permissions to access /etc/ppp.chatscript or /etc/ppp.options_out"

As you can see, pon is just a little shell script that calls
/usr/sbin/pppd with the following arguments:
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp.chatscript"
and whatever is in /etc/ppp.options_out

So to find out more, look at the manpage for pppd.
