Please - don't make run on sentences and capitalize each word. It makes things very hard to read...

If you are correct and there's a 9 Pin 232 port, then one of the generic USB-serial converters listed here will do the job. This article is from our wiki, and note that all links are always blue

Connecting scanners via USB - The RadioReference Wiki

now as for software- unfortunately the only decent software has been out of support for a long time now, but it may still be available...

ScanControl Ver. 7.1

and this page tells you how to set the 2052 up for remote programming;

Scan Control- setup radio page

Unless you have a bunch of channels to program, you can program this scanner manually. We have 2 links that can help - there are 2 shortcut articles on the first link, and the Easier to Read manual for the 2052 is next.....
