Custom Inventory linked to assets?

I'm new, like, haven't signed the contract new (but I'm sure we will) and I had a question about how to link something.
I noticed the printer inventory shows a printer name, no other details. So I wanted to add them, and I found a method on here that adds custom inventory that's just text but, it does pull back the IP/PORT of the printer. Now, I also SNMP scanned the printer and pulled it back and provisioned it. How would I link my provisioned inventory to custom inventory so when I look at someone's information re: a printer I can click the link to go to the printer that's provisioned.
The idea here is to get a full picture of an environment. If a switch goes down that we've either scanned or imported and we build a relationship to machines and peripherals, network attached devices to run a report that says if switch A goes down, here's what's effected and then these people also cannot print to these printers(we're a hospital we print a lot).
