Anybody else have some mechanical alarm bells going off at the notion of a
dremel on the end of a pantograph?

I would maybe use some parts from existing printers and or scanners, but
this sounds like a build from scrap project, not adapt a old plotter. Basic
problem is just what you mention, you are going to need to rewrite control
software, which for a basic x/y plotter can't be too awfully tough.
