$zf functions (3-6 to be precise) cannot call arbitrary libraries but only InterSystems IRIS callout libraries.

You need to write a C library which is an InterSystems IRIS callout library and which calls the dll you need. Here's documentation on that. And here's a sample callout library.

Another approach would be using the CNA community project to call your library. CNA provides an interface for using native C-compatible shared libraries.
