Connecting two identical radios back-to-back is the easy part, which this cable probably can do okay. But it does not include a station identifier, which is mandatory.
I also am skeptical about the claim of full duplex operation. Back-to-back cables normally work in cross-band applications, where the radio that is receiving a signal uses its COR to key another radio. Then, when the reply comes in, the keying direction is reversed. This is simply a variant of two-frequency simplex operation..

Subject: [Repeater-Builder] BiDirectional Repeater Cable?
Has anyone actually used this product?:
Seems to be a repeater maker cable that offers full DUPLEX for both radios, through the Acc pins. Was interested in using this for a few cross-band systems, if we can use a total of only 2 radios for both Tx and Rx that'd be great! Anyone that's used this product, let me know if it works.
