As usual, Henry Baker wrote some stuff years ago that might be helpful there.
Poking around with the obvious web searches should turn it up.

Did anyone ever get any further on the "Emacs lisp on GNU Guile" idea?
I'm not too familiar with the current state of Guile these days but, at one time, while it was never clear we could do it perfectly, there was non-trivial effort and
decision making in that direction.
