It appears DCS doesn't allow assigning the VR or mouse functions to keyboard characters. My workaround is using an ancient Belkin Nostromo N52 keypad on my left like you are attempting. I have programmed keys for VR functions, mouse functions, general functions (i.e. quit, pause, active pause, frame rate display, control input indicator and cockpit camera position). I setup a N52 profile that maps the keys to DirectInputs (DI's), which the DCS recognizes as joystick buttons and will accept for the VR and mouse commands. I doubled the numbers of commands on the keypad from 24 to 48 by using one of the joystick buttons on the stick as a modifier.

I am happy with the way it works.
