I'm kinda looking to do a decoy scanning with traffic similar to Nessus.

How easy/hard depends on what they have on the other end. For example: 

hping -a -E attack.txt -A -p 80

Will send a TCP ACK packet to port 80 at from the source IP The payload will be the contents of the file "attack.txt".
This file should contain some well known signature that an IDS/IPS will
trigger on such as:

GET /cgi-bin/wrap

or similar. Now, the above will only work if the IDS/IPS in question *is
not* stateful. If it is, you need to do a UDP based attack. Something

hping -a -E attack.txt -2 -p 53

Where is their name server and attack.txt contains something

cbrenton () chrisbrenton org

Did you know:
When a Windows system sends an Echo-Request, it codes in how many
Echo-Requests have been transmitted since the last reboot. This can be
helpful in locating zombies.
