SeaBIOS is a BIOS implementation and BIOS is fortunately x86-specific.

The method used by BIOSes to boot from USB doesn't apply at all on
other machines.

Unless someone provides a well-tested recipe for creating a full
working solution to replace what was shipped on your device I would
very strongly discourage you from experimenting with firmware unless
you are prepared to spend many days on doing recovery and years on
learning, as well as maybe a hundred USD/EUR/GBP on tools.
