I have a robot that is controlled by TwinCat on an IPC. I would like to integrate ROS with this system on the same IPC. Is there a way to read/write the data from/to ROS topics into my TwinCat program?

Have you looked into Beckhoff's TwinCAT SDK? With ROS2 natively usable on Windows, this should be possible.

I would perhaps take a look at Beckhoff/ADS. It's an OSS library from Beckhoff which enables communication over ADS with "Twincat devices". It's regular C++11 and does not require Windows.
