Deep-dive into ECU workings

Before you start screaming hear me out.
I have been using the python coding language on a daily basis for a couple of years now and once in a while I stumble across scripts that supposedly allow you to access car diagnostics ... etc., now I've never tried it out but it got me wondering to what extent I might be capable to access and modify ECU maps with a standard laptop and some coding skills.

Obviously I would first need to wrap my head around how ECU/map "files" look like and interact. Any idea where I can find information on that, or more generally information on the ECUs that have been used (i.e., manuals)?

It’s already been done Mate check out
Oh wow. Someone did quite some research there. Haven't gone through it in detail though it seems not to cover the 2.5KV6 or am I mistaken?
The 2.5 L kv6 is a completely different ecu pretty sure it’s made by Bosch
