Correct usage falls into the "write for your audience" category. If you're
addressing a general user group, in which you are trying to describe
hardware connections to the full gamut of users, you'd want to stick with
standard verbs to describe the action---and perhaps placate other readers
with the techie term in parentheses.

If you're writing an installation guide for IT-type users, "daisychain," as
a verb, is probably the quickest route to their comprehension. ("Connecting
the hardware in a series???? Oh, you mean daisychaining.")

I know that "Daisy chain" is valid terminology to use, but can you say
"daisy chaining"?

For example, I would say, "I have daisy chained my computer, printer, and
scanner together."
