I pulled out my handwritten notes from a try at doing this in early December and before we had the first beta software from NWD. I quick stuck them in a spreadsheet, updated a little, then PDF’ed them.
Please find the PDF redraw of my notes attached (or in the UDRC/DRAWS file repo on the group).
Use flrig on your Pi with KXUSB and the Elecraft KXPACBL cabling kit plus the PX3 I/Q connector to daisy chain the amp and the panadapter. Looked like flrig controlled the rig without an issue.
BTW - I have never tried to use the LINUX distro version of the Elecraft utilities so I have no idea if they work on the Pi. If you have used them, I would be interest to hear your experience.

Does anyone know of a premade cable I could buy, or the pinouts I could use to make, running from the DRAWS to an Elecraft KX3/PX3/KXPA100 setup? (I list all the pieces in case they matter.)

If he happens to have the RT-Systems RTS01 cable for programming that radio, it is a CI-V cable. I believe RTS uses FTDI USB-UART chips...
Interesting that flrig recognized it by its full “by-id” designator. /dev/serial/by-id/usb-RT_Systems-RTS01_Radio_Cable...(etc, blah)... port0. It also calls the Keyspan dongle I use for the Yaesu FT-817 by its long identifier. I don’t remember seeing that in Raspbian Jesse or prior.

USB to CI-V cables tend to work directly on Linux appearing as /dev/ttyUSBx (x being a number) -- no virtual port needed, then just send the CAT control down that cable.
I don't own or have access to a 718, so shooting a little blind on this. I am referring to USB to CI-V cables that plug into the CI-V connector directly. Connector 4 on the illustration of the IC-718 in the manual. It refers to page 57
There are USB-to-CI-V interface cables available which could connect to the 718 CI-V jack, but unsure whether the needed USB driver to create the virtual serial port is available for Linux/Pi. If so, than FLRIG can do CAT control. There are of course Windows USB drivers that are used today for this. I don't recall if WSJT-X supports the ICcom CI-V interface.
