Whats the purpose of the GIMX adapter?

I connect xbox controller to my PC using USB so I know its just using the USB protocol. Why is the GIMX adapter necessary?

I've moved your thread to new section.

Gimx adapter is used for emulating input devices on game consoles. For example: you wanna use xbox one controller on PS4 --> Gimx emulates xbox one controller to a dualshock 4.
If you use controller on Pc, that doesn't gimx's usage.

So suppose I want to use my PS4 controller with my XBox. I connect my ps4 controller to the PC but I can't connect the USB cable from my PC to my XBox. I have to attach the gimx adapter(hardware) in between. Can't the gimx code on my pc directly emulate the output to the Xbox instead of using the adapter in between?

No. We wouldn't use adapter if we could.
