Non-Arduino GPIO access on Alpha 864

Hello There!
I bought myself a Lattepanda Alpha 864. I went through the docs for working on the board. I then managed to dual boot Ubuntu 18.04 on it. I checked the OS and the Arduino Leonardo also shows up. My next bit of tasks that I am facing issues are
1. How to access the pins for communication(I2S,RS232,I2C,USB2.0) and use them as simple GPIO pins that I can use for wiring up and controlling sensors and actuators instead of using them as communication pins?(Do I need to write some kind of drivers or something?Like how drivers are written for Beaglebone Black?)
2. Can Qt framework for C++ work on the Alpha?
If anyone can guide me in the right direction that would be great!!!
