After I Took a look at your maestro link and discovered it has a TTL serial port. The arduino has a USB port and also has matching RS232 serial port.

You can connect the serial ports together and and begin programming the servo controllers depending on your knowledge and skill by the arduino .
From my point of view this is really Simple.
The arduino has a USB and this can let you type commands for a program on the
arduino, EASY...

If you need wiring help ask early.
