Just my 2c. The easiest is to adapt some existing(past?) piece of
software that drives something similar.

As far as using the V-ID & P-ID, this might be similar to some of the
(recent) hacking to get various flatbed paper scanners working where it
was necessary to add an entry to udev(?)

As to software, it as to be about two decades ago when I saw a
presentation at a LUG of a PC driven Oscilloscope that was primarily to
run under Linux, It has since been released, but i do not know if the
software is FOSS.

Last suggestion is to trawl Github or similar repository for
software you could adapt,
