Yes and yes.
I have already setup a basic lc script for use with the Zygodact generator stack “gen.rev” and Fastspring. And the test orders run through w/o problems.
I will add some DB stuff to it, to store the orders in my own DB also.

What i can say so far is: You definitely do need  a commercial version of LC server, because the gen.rev stack Zygodact produces is password protected and LC Server Community Edition is not able to work with
password protected stacks.

I will create a pdf with intstructions for Zygodact/Fastspring with sample scripts like the PDF i created for Zygodact/KAGI.
The sample script will allow you to use it right away. You will just have to change one value in that script. It´s a private key which is provided by Fastspring. 

But give me 2-3 days, okay?

Regards,

Matthias
