Just curious if anybody has done it and if the process is simple to set up.

Possibly the worst idea ever. The only reason you'd ever want to use an Xbox controller on a PC is for Console port games like CoD or Elder Scrolls.

Actually you could probably still use the keyboard for hotkeys, though using both the controller and keyboard would be silly.

If anyone has valuable advice unlike this I'd like to hear it. I'm going to try to make something work. Does anybody know if this has been done?

I would like to do it too.
This way I can just sit back in the couch and play swtor on my tv. I got a small keyboard I would like to use in combination with the controller.
I hate the mouse, it hurts my clicking finger.

Look for an app called Joystix Pro. They make profiles for all games, allowing you to set switch buttons to have like 20-30 keybinds possible on a controller. Never used it myself but I get emails about it a lot.
