If you're not using the same toolkit as the Python IDE, then I think this
will get very difficult, if not impossible.

If you're only targetting Windows, then I think PythonWin will be possible.

Anything that uses Scintilla will be a candidate. Perhaps it's wise to
outsource this task, like the producers of WingIDE?
