You can send controls by writing the parameter to offset 3114 then the control number to 3110. (Or write both together in one 8-byte write).

0x654c is a 4-byte float32, so you need to use ipc.readFLT and not ipc.readSD.

Presumably you have enabled these offsets as described in the offset mapping document for the PMDG 777X? That document also contains the size and type of each offset, which will help you to determine which ipc.read function to use.
