You can use code from arebgun repo, binaries for kinetic are available:

sudo apt install ros-kinetic-dynamixel-motor

You can find dynamixel tutorials here

MX28AT motor does not support torque control, so this narrows down your options to position or velocity control, for velocity control you can check this other repo since it is not part of arebgun repo yet.
