Nobody else has offered help yet, so I'll take a shot.  What exactly are
your "ids"?  Do you mean you have headlines with assigned CUSTOM_ID
properties, and you have a list of values for which you want to show the
headlines in agenda?  If so, I think you could just assemble the list in a
command that sticks new search conditions into one of your custom agenda views.

E.g., if you currently had a custom agenda search mapped to "i" for two
different CUSTOM_IDs, like this:

  (setq org-agenda-custom-commands
           '(("i" tags "CUSTOM_ID=323|CUSTOM_ID=832")))

you could reissue command to get the search done for different list of
custom ids:

  (setq org-agenda-custom-commands
           '(("i" tags "CUSTOM_ID=153|CUSTOM_ID=932|CUSTOM_ID=293")))

I haven't tested this, but I expect it or something similar would work. 
There are probably tweaks you could make, e.g, list could be combined into a
regular expression so you don't need to repeat multiple 'CUSTOM_ID=' sections.
