glDoom, jDoom (Doomsday engine) and all the other Doom conversions are possible because the source code for Doom has been released and is publicly available to download(source code is the original code used to make the program). VGS is a closed source project, the source code is not available. Manipulating binary code(computer language) is extremely hard work; video rendering code is much too complex to implement. Even if a patch is possible it couldn't be implemented easily, or at all. It's not wholly impossible, but it would be very, VERY difficult and not likely to happen.
