How to report ambient temperature using Victron Shunt or SmartSolar to VRM portal?

I have a Raspberry Pi running Venus with Victron Shunt and SmartSolar. I'd like to also report the ambient temperature to the VRM portal. I have read that there are ways to add custom sensors using an AD converter. However, given Victron Shunt already comes with a battery temperature sensor input, can I use that input to report the ambient temperature using the Victron battery temperature sensor? Will it show only as a battery temp? Also, since SmartSolar has the built-in temperature sensor, is there a way to report that value or is it strictly used to compare the value to the battery temp to compensate?

Thanks in advance.
