Cool you seem confused

hydraulic cables? hoses are for fluids.. housing, for cables, are dry inside..

I have adopted TRP Hy Rd calipers , which are hydraulic within themselves,

the cable pulls lever attached to 1 master cylinder, that pushes mineral oil
that oil pressure goes to 2 slave cylinders that pushes the pads to the disc.

its cable all the way to the caliper.. you could just as well use mechanical disc brakes instead
only the calipers differ..

I don't understand why you have decided it wont work

without actually trying it,,

A year ago my friends at the LBS, used one of those cable doublers 1 brake lever
to pull the actuating levers on 2 S-A Drum Brake Hubs,
in order to have braking power on a wide cargo trailer

used by a Hunter to haul an Elk Carcass out of the woods,
game shot, during Hunting Season.
