You can achieve communication with both protocols using Dynamixel SDK. It is written in both C++ and Python and a few other languages. Here you can find examples on how you can combine both protocols in C++ and Python. A ROS based package Dynamixel Workbench is provided by Robotis. This should give you an idea how you can use Dynamixel SDK for ROS specific interfaces.
