Not really. To get a (dummy) .pro file, use 'qmake -project'. Either
refine that, or use it for editing only, remove the 'qmake' build
step and use whatever buildsystem have been used before.

For the usb tap you might be out of luck. There is no special support
for it in Creator. Maybe you can cobble something together using
gdb/gdbserver and openocd, but I've never tried this myself.
In any case, I'd be interested in hearing about your findings.

If you manage to get a debugging solution on the command line
up and running it should be possible to access it from Creator.
