    I want to control the motors using Arbotix-m, and I want to connect Arbotix-m with UDOO Neo baord.
    So I can run a software in UDOO Neo that controls the motors using Arbotix-m.
    Is this possible?

    The arbotix-m has a built-in Arduino MCU so do you don't need a Neo to control. You program it using Arduino IDE with the arbotix-m connected via USB to a PC. You could program the arbotix to talk to the Neo if it has spare serial port.

    If you still want to control motors using a Neo, the easiest option (although not completely simple as discussed in your 1st post regarding UART5 configuration) is use the linux side and either use a serial or usb adapter. Some hardware options are below, however I can't vouch they will work as I haven't tested them:

    1. ROBOTIS USB to Dynamixel Adapter
    2. USB-AD43
    3. Serial adapter
    4. USB adapter

    BTW best not to create separate posts for each question.
