Linking ASPEN HYSYS to MATLAB, back into HYSYS

I am looking to do a very simplified model for fuel cells (zero-dimensional), and I have written down the main part into the script. However, given that there are very many possibilities in the hydrogen production (main fuel into the fuel cell), I am thinking of using ASPEN HYSYS and utilise its established chemical properties to perform the various hydrogen production reactions (such as steam reforming or methanol reforming). This stream would then be fed into the fuel cell. In addition, ideally I would also like to utilise the hot stream exiting the fuel cell to generate more power in HYSYS.
In summary, I am looking to simulate some reactions using HYSYS, extract the relevant variables from it and pass it to the simple MatLab codes that I've written, and finally pass output variables back into HYSYS.
May I ask what would be the best way to approach this? I am aware of hysyslib, but I am not familiar with it and therefore not very sure if it is suitable for the application that I am looking to carry out.
Thank you very much for your help!
