You can actually just use a multichannel preamp with ADAT to expand the available inputs and outputs in your DAW. The DP88 would accomplish this, though there are a variety of products from different brands that work.

Yes, I'm well aware of that but, the question is:

Can I run two Studio 192 units via separate USB 3.0 cables to my Windows PC ports and access all channels in the DAW?

Is that possible / impossible? I'd like to do it this way instead of ADAT because of cable limitations.

Thanks!

From Presonus tech support:

Yes it is possible and you would need to use third party applications to help you do so.  The process is called 'Audio Aggregate'.
Here are some articles on how to aggregate two devices together :
