Sounds like a lot of hassle. Unless vsthost runs plugins better than Ardour.

VST plugins and LADSPA plugins are equivalent from a monitoring perspective.
Just use software monitoring and enable running plugins when recording. In
this configuration, Ardour will monitor via software and the plugins the
track input when the track is armed for recording. If you want to monitor
the signal even when the track is not armed, switch on auto-input.
