Let's say I want to use SoftSqueeze playing through my USB audio
interface, but of course I want to use the Squeezebox remote and display
to select and see what's playing. Is this possible? Can I synch the
systems such that Softsqueeze is the slave controlled by my commands to
the Squeezebox itself?

In the player settings, you can choose to sync audio playback, volume control
and power control. if you want total control, including display output then
you can look into a great plugin from Felix Mueller called ShadowPlay:

Hi all

Check out ShadowPlayP (permanent) if you want to link two players together permanently. You need to set the MAC addresses of the local and remote player in the file itself since the plugin does not have a player or web interface. You also need to restart SlimServer.

Cheers
