Question Bypassing Fan/Light Remote

Current setup: In wall wired remote switch / remote to a Hampton bay fan that has up/down lights. Both the up and down lights are dimmable and controlled independently. The remote receiver will not dim properly with LED bulbs, and I am moving over all of my switches to zwave. The remote receiver in the fan takes in one hot and one neutral, and has a hot/neutral that goes to the fan, and then a hot for the up light, and a hot for the downlight.

If I were to replace the current 14/3 wiring with a 14/4, could I run one hot to up light, one hot to down light, and one hot to the fan and the neutral to neutral and use 3 switches to control the 3 things? I could then replace the 3 switches with zwave later. Would this wiring work?

I would confirm that the two lights run directly from 120v.
If so.... then you could use three switches to run them.
