Could you please provide more detailed description of what you are
trying to do? The IEEE 802.1X EAPOL authenticator in hostapd is pretty
tightly coupled with the internal RADIUS client implementation, so there
may be need for considerable number of changes to be able to use another
RADIUS client implementation.

Yes, the RADIUS protocol does not place limitations on this.
