Well, I know a (very) little about this which could provide an idea towards the next step.
This is not the solution you are looking for but it may provide insight as to possibility or not.

Here's my experience.

I had an old Chevy Equinox which we had lost the extra fob and key for.
Dealer wanted $300 for new key.

Along comes Amazon, years later (after only having one key for a long time) which sells the extra uncut keys which contain the programmable part of the key.

I went to Lowes and they cut the key for FREE. Wow!
I then went to the car and put the original key (I know you don't have this) in, turned to accessory or something, then tapped the gas pedal four times then take out original.

After that I put the new cut key (as yet unprogrammed) into the ignition and followed some similar ritual (turned to accessory & then pumped gas pedal 4 times) and voila! The new key was programmed.

Now, what I learned was that it was programmed from the old key sitting there. The old key apparently had to be "in range" to the new one when you do this.

But think about how simple that was (took about 5 minutes) and the Dealer, of course wanted $300.
So terrible.

Anyways, maybe this tells you something more about whether or not what you're thinking is possible.
It may at least give you some ideas.

I'm sorry I don't have more to help you with. Good luck!
