Can I set StudiLive III in DAW mode to spill VST plugin parameters to the faders instead of knobs? (as on FaderPort 8)

I have had StudioLive III for a while.  I just saw some videos on how the FaderPort can spill VST parameters to one parameter per fader!  Awesome!  How can I do that on the StudioLive, so that I have up to 32 faders’ worth of hands on control?

Assuming it’s not possible... can I buy a FaderPort 8 or 16, and use it to control just plugin parameters, AT THE SAME TIME as my StudioLive III is in DAW Control mode?  Or only one or the other can be active in a session, and I’d be losing out on the StudioLive III DAW Control?  To be honest, the FaderPort is so compact and efficient for non-FAT Channel control, maybe I will trade down to that.

I also have the Atom controller.  Can I use that at same time as either of the above?  I never actually plugged it in, lol.

Thanks everyone.

The Series III consoles and the CS18AI have no "VST spill", they use the Fat Channel encoders and scribble strips for this (except two of the new "black" models). The faders are use for volume control only in the different sections

As far as I know it is not possible to use two USB processing units on one computer, but this should be answered by an expert. If you use a Series III console in DAW mode you don't really need a Faderport, because your faders are getting "multilplicated" by layers.

The Atom is called controller, but it is more an instrument.
