Authenticate users with already existing database

Hello, I'm new to PimpMyLog

I want to authenticate all the users who want to access their log files with the passwords they already have. For this I use mysql. Is there some way that PimpMyLog forwards the login-request to a script I write where it passes the username and the password. I also would have to put the password trough a custom scramble-function so that is't equal to the value stored in the database (if correct). Furthermore I want that all the users only can see certain log files. They are in the following format:
user1 -> user1-access.log / user1-error.log ... and so on.

Is all of this possible with PimpMyLog? I haven't found any info on how to do it yet. If these are trivial questions please just forward me to some links where these 2 issues get explained, it would be very helpful to me.
