I usually open Houdini and set up projects from there, but it would be nicer if I can set up the project from simple command line.

Are you talking about directory tree?
just mkdir command you can run in terminal. Something like:

mkdir -p /ProjectName/render/geo/otherstuff/etc/etc/etc/

but I think you still have to open houdini and save your project.

if you want to create project just do:
touch youHoudiniPoroject.hip

good suggestion, guess I have to automate this process with a script
