    How would I go about figuring out how to trigger the Joycons LEDs and HD Rumble Motors? I want to make a program to test out the controllers features and possibly remap the inputs.

    You might be able to use wireshark in order to capture the bluetooth packets sent by the joycons in order to figure out how they work. Then you would need to code some sort of driver in order to decode the joycon inputs into what you want to use it for in a program.
