Some support is already included in src/add-ons/kernel/drivers/common/usb_modeswitch.cpp

I don't know what other support might be needed, usb_serial should be able to attach these devices out of the box (except for usb device matching).

Nothing else is needed, usb_serial supports ttyACM and will use them happily once put in the right mode.

We could update usb_modeswitch to support more devices, it looks like the list in freebsd has become longer.

Note that getting anything done with these will also require a working PPP stack.
