VuFind uses Zend Framework 2's Db abstraction layer, so as long as Firebird is compatible with ZF2 (and it appears it should be using PDO), this should be possible.
1.) Translate the database creation SQL found in the module/VuFind/sql directory.
2.) Add some code to set up the Firebird adapter in the VuFind\Db\AdapterFactory class.
3.) Test to see if it actually works!
Let me know if you have any questions about this process. If you are successful in adding Firebird support, please contribute it back, and we can make it a standard feature for future releases.
