No, software written to use a serial port will not work with a USB device.

Yes there may a way, I am not sure what your device is but have a mobile mapping program for work vehicles that only recognizes serial ports and used a program from garmin to recognize the usb gps 18 receiver and assign it a serial port number. More info needed. There are also usb to serial adapters, but if you need high speed data transfer that might be a problem.
