Modify Existing Plugin for Frigidaire Dehumidifier

I just picked up a new Frigidaire dehumidifier that has built-in WiFi for connection to Alexa (and whatnot). It's controllable via a standalone app and I was hoping I might be able to leverage one of the existing plugins to control it. It works remotely, so I suspect it requires cloud. There's only a few settings to control;

Power (on/off)
Target Humidity (up/down)
Fan Speed (high/low)
Timer (set 30 min increments/clear)

If copying an existing framework won't work, I'd appreciate a few pointers or online sources to learn how to go about starting from scratch. I have Wireshark up and running, but don't really know how to use it.

Thanks in advance!

Have you searched on Github for any existing stuff that can be incorporated or at least used as a source of information?

Yeah, I found stuff for homebridge integration and for IR commands, but I didn't see anything that was straight-up Python.

I don't mind the learning exercise if I need to go that route.
