Remove VUSB as part of job

I am looking to automate backups for a VM on XCP-NG that has vUSBs attached. I was thinking of a job sequence that went something like this: shut down vm, remove vusb, backup, reattach vusb, start up vm. Is this possible with Xen Orchestra jobs? Is there any better way to do this?
First thing I have in mind is to use
xo-cli, but I'm not sure you can play with vUSB in this CLI.
A kind of workaround would be to have a cron in the host that will shutdown and unplug the USB device (just before the backup job), and then will do the opposite few minutes later.

Might a different solution be to use a USB network bridge instead of direct attached USB? Something like this https://www.seh-technology.com/products/usb-deviceserver/utnserver-pro.html (There are different options available)... We use my-utn-50a with hardware USB keys and it has shown to be very reliable over the years.
@w21froster Did you ever come up with a solution here?
