You need to say what led board you have and provide a link to its data sheet before anyone can offer any sort of help.

I am assuming that the board is a commercial product and has a manual that you will be able to read.

In order to control the board you will need to find the communications port (socket somewhere) and a definition of the messages that you can send to the board to control it. Once you have that then you can write the software.

Otherwise you will need to reverse-engineer the communications protocol, which may be more complex than you may want to tackle at this stage.
