How to combine WinHostMon and Perfmon data to get CPU usage per MSSQL server instance?

Explorer

The goal here is to get CPU usage per SQL instance. As far as I can tell there is no perfmon counter that will give you this data-- please correct me if I'm wrong.

So the only way I can figure to get this is combining WinHostMon data with Perfmon data.

WinHostMon data looks like this:

Type=Service
Name="MSSQL$SYSTEMS2"
DisplayName="SQL Server (SYSTEMS2)"
Description="Provides storage, processing and controlled access of data, and rapid transaction processing."
Path=""C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.SYSTEMS2\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe" -sSYSTEMS2"
ServiceType="Own Process"
StartMode="Manual"
Started=true
State="Running"
Status="OK"
ProcessId=7880

and the PerfMon data looks like this (in 2 separate, unrelated events)

Event1:

12/20/2016 16:50:43.866 -0500
collection=sqlserverhost:process
object=Process
counter="ID Process"
instance=sqlservr
Value=7880

Event2:

12/20/2016 16:50:43.866 -0500
collection=sqlserverhost:process
object=Process
counter="% Processor Time"
instance=sqlservr
Value=3.1103384864426066869

Any idea how to combine all three of these events into 1 event and get a result that looks like:
DisplayName,ProcessID,%CPU

eg:

"SQL Server (SYSTEMS2)", 7880, 3.11

You may need to join your search query to manipulate the results
