I have had a lot of success in talking to various serial and USB devices using a serial class that I wrote. You can find the serial class files here (in src/ and include/), along with how I use that class to communicate with a digital compass. You would need to find an API/SDK for your motor controller that tells you what commands and responses are available for your device. Then, you would need to write code to initialize your device, send appropriate commands to move the motors and read any responses.

Out of curiosity... did you create a ROS-driver for the Firgelli motor driver?
