There is a good tutorial how to connect to VL53l0x sensor very similar to VL53l1x that you can use a reference:

Make sure to use the right Arduino driver:

ROS node publishes sensor_msgs::Range message into range_data topic. Node has several optional configuration parameters:

port - which usb port to use. Default: /dev/ttyUSB0 baud_rate - transmission speed between sensor and node. Default: 57600 frame_id - tf frame ID of the sensor. Default: ir_range firmware_version - reserved. Not used as for now.

Once you know it works well with one, there are multiple tutorials for managing multiple sensors. Take a look at this one for example:
