Are you trying to replace the default vnc console with guacamole or are you
trying to run it as a service on top of Openstack?

Scenario A - built in console
I am unaware of any method in the code today to replace the default console
with guacamole.

Scenario B - Use it as a service

I can't imagine it would be too hard if you leverage some kind of
automation framework to create your instances. In the example of using
ansible to create machines on the cloud - you could first call the playbook
that creates your instance and then query the API for the details of that
instance. You could then insert the needed parameters to the guacamole
server to access this machine.
The following modules could be used in this case - mind you this is one of
many examples to accomplish this task
Create Instance

Query the API

And then to update Guacamole you can use a template that includes a method
to properly create your backend connections of all of the required instances

I am not an expert in Guacamole, so you will have to tinker a bit here.

Also dropping infra - this ML is mainly for the actual Openstack project
infra - so like CI resources and code hosting resources

Thanks and good luck!
