making a 18f2550 behave as a pl2303 virtual comport and 16f88

Ok, I think I'm biting off more than I can chew here so I'm hoping
someone has already done this........
I have used usb/serial dongles with a pl2303, connected to a pic16f88
and then used the serin serout to communicate to the outside world.

Has anyone done this kind of setup with a 18f2550(or equiv) ?

As a simple hello world I just want to switch some leds on /off via
USB, then I can get down to the complicated stuff........

I thought my 2550 would have arrived by now but it must be stuck in
customs somewhere incase its a WMD.
