It's not clear enough from your description how to come at it.

 - for integration with something else's existing poll loop, look at EXTERNAL_POLL in the test server.  This is usually used to 'bolt on' lws to an existing server.

 - for http[s] and / or ws[s] multiple listen ports, look at the new vhosts stuff on master, and how lwsws uses it

If those don't fit, describe your architechture more clearly.
