Airscarf could be made to work, but it'll be fiddly
You could wire power to the fans and heating elements and just have one heat / speed setting, but they are supposed to be controlled by their own ECU, which modulates the fan speed and heat settings depending on a whole host of factors - speed, temperature, roof position, window position etc etc -
All of the data, and the airscarf switch position is fed into the heater ECU over the CAN network, and the ECU takes power for the heaters / blower directly from the front fuse box in a 171 (the one inside the car, not the front SAM). The heater ECU is also responsible for temperature control and timing so the seats don't overheat ....
Not the 'Probie' anymore..!
