The rbf file is an FPGA configuration file for the altera FPGA in the
USRP1. My understanding is that a VI is a program that runs in the
labview runtime environment. Not related.

100% possible

Any arbitrary hardware can work with gnuradio. You need to write a class
in C++ that inherits from a gr_sync_block and talks to your device. Are
you willing and able to do that?

-- another option --

Some people use a named pipe to share streaming data between a gnuradio
file source/sink and another software environment that produces/consumes
the samples.
