Using python to load a .DLL plugin

I’m trying to develop an addon that would essentially just load DSpellCheck into Anki’s environment. I know of Glutanimate’s spellcheck addon and the spelling police addon but I was hoping to make a free one that’s better. Since most of the work is already done, and the source code is here, I was wondering if there was an easy way to make the plugin usable as an anki addon. I’m also a novice when it comes to coding. Any ideas?

DSpellcheck is the source code for the notepad++ plugin.

Can’t help with loading DLLs, but why not just use a cross-platform library like this one: pyspellchecker · PyPI ?

I actually did try using that at first but for whatever reason, I wasn’t able to get it to work.
