With a lot of effort.

Your question is very open-ended; what are you asking, specifically?

The core gnucash engine could be adapted to a different application
model and user interface, sure.  There is, unfortunately, a lot of
application logic that's too close to the UI code, e.g., in button-press
handlers.  So that would need to be factored out.

I'd not try to salvage anything from the existing register ui
abstraction code, especially considering that it's already been
re-written even for a normal desktop app model, let alone a
web-request/response model.

I'd say there's many person-years of effort to get where you want
From the current gnucash codebase.

(I'd argue it is less work to properly re-build gnucash using modern
toolkits/frameworks and techniques.)
