As for concrete suggestions: I have worked a lot with RQuantLib in the past, and I have found it a reliable and stable package.
Perhaps I may also suggest NMOF, which I maintain. It provides implementations of a number of models (Black/Scholes/Merton, Merton jump-diffusion, Heston, ...). It also implements the approach of Bakshi/Madan (2000) for pricing based on the characteristic function. The implementation is essentially the one described in this paper on Calibrating Option Pricing Models.
