Hello,
This is is my robot milling Poly:


It would be great if EMC2 could run Kuka robots or any other robot, but is going to take alot of effort.. I will be running EMC2 for my Mitsubishi Movemaster soon, 6 Dc servo driver + Motor.

EMC2 already does run robots. There are specific kinematics modules for a small number of specific robots, and a general serial kinematics module for arbitrary robots.

Unfortunately it is an area that is not particularly well documented.

Be cautious buying IO hardware, "Linux Compatible" doesn't mean "EMC2 compatible".
Unless you fancy writing your own driver (which can be fun, and not too difficult) I would suggest buying hardware from the supported hardware list:
