HVAC doesn't broadcast to the bus. For example it won't send "I just turned on the AC" but it can take diagnostic commands from INPA "Turn on the AC".

However, the HVAC also does "It's 24C, turn down the fans" or "Move this stepper motor, stop this stepper motor here" internally, so you would need to mimic that in software. The HVAC relocation panel is only about $30 and is fairly easy to fit.

So you need INPA to mock up the commands. Search for a post entitled "BMW and INPA success" to find a guide.
