If I hook it up exactly like this I don’t have to use all the controller hooks up?
You need the controller buttons of course. :). I will be adding some pictures here soon for wiring the buttons via GPIO or Pro Micro.
I can’t get the volume wheel working. Are these actually getting GPIO pins assigned to them from the Pi Zero?
