Port forward WITH application

First let me say I've searched the forums for an answer on my particular issue, and Google, and haven't found out if I can do this. I'm using a Mac to run Transmission (desktop version) and I have the PIA client installed. It all *works* but I don't have a desktop-client-friendly way to automate the port in Transmission.

What I'm curious about is if I start using some kind of shell script to query the API while the client is also configured for port-forwarding; how bad of a practice is this? Should I use a script and disable it in the client?

Is there a script that queries it FROM the client? I figured if it is there to show up in a hover tooltip, then there is at least a chance it can be pulled from that and fed into Transmission on the backend to keep the ports matched.

Your thoughts? Thanks in advance!
