Generally for the intel PC platform, brcmfmac drivers are available depending on the specific chip en:users:drivers:brcm80211 [Linux Wireless] WWD from WICED is not easily portable. Is there a specific reason to use WWD for intel platform? Also which WLAN chip is being used here?
cyw43438 is being used here, The product is on RTEMS OS , so porting the WWD from Wiced

We would still recommend that FMAC driver be used for CYW43438 although this would require Linux OS. 43430 is the WLAN core for CYW43438. FMAC driver could be ported into the host processor running Linux kernel.
To answer your question, wwd_bus_sdio_download_firmware( ) in wwd_bus_protocol.c is used for downloading WLAN firmware and nvram. The sequence of function calls to load firmware is shown below:
download_resource( WWD_RESOURCE_WLAN_FIRMWARE, 0 )
resource_read( &wifi_firmware_image, offset, buffer_size, size_out, buffer )
WIFI_FIRMWARE_RESOURCE_VARIABLE_NAME = $(addprefix resources_,$(subst /,_DIR_,$(subst -,_,$(subst .,_,$(subst $(SOURCE_ROOT)resources/,,$(WIFI_FIRMWARE_BIN))))))
GLOBAL_DEFINES += wifi_firmware_image=$(WIFI_FIRMWARE_RESOURCE_VARIABLE_NAME)
The above operations would need to be considered to port into your host. Also you would need to consider whether the firmware is placed in internal or external memory.
Similarly for nvram, wwd_bus_write_wifi_nvram_image( ) is used along with a similar sequence of function calls to load wifi_nvram_image from wifi_nvram_image.h in platforms.
