The design looks almost perfect for a HSD retrofit (replace transmission with PSD/MG1 and add MG2) but it won't offer much in your application considering it will run in EV mode most of the time.

An IMA setup, however, is very easy. Add another gear on the drive shaft and mount the motor to the frame. Use sheet metal to make a bracket for the motor.
