Good day @vooteleaer,
Firstly, we don't provide support for third-party hardware, but you'll probably have to install the necessary drivers so it get's recognized.
Secondly, I don't really understand what you are trying to do with the wifi. Disable the AP and connect to a wifi with the RPI0W? Modify the configuration (ssid, pass...)? For disabling the generated wifi hotspot disabling hostapd on boot as with any other service should do the trick.
