FPP supports a Generic Serial Channel Output, so you should be able to use your Arduino with FPP if the Arduino provides a serial port over the USB connection to the Pi/BBB.

Im trying to do something very similar to this, which USB output in Xlights would be most like a generic serial?

I am not sure xlights has a generic serial so I dont know.  It might but I have never looked at it.  I rarely configure outputs in xlights.  :)
