Is there a way through software to close and open the shunt cal switch? I want to close the shunt cal switch, then I read the value, then open the switch all by software. Can I do that?

Yes, you can use "Analog Input:General Properties:Signal Conditioning:Bridge:Shunt Cal:Shunt Cal Enable" property to do this.
  1. On your Block Diagram drop DAQmx Channel Node
  2. Then navigate to Shunt Cal Enable property: AnalogInput>>General Properties>>Signal Conditioning>>Bridge>>Shunt Cal>>Shunt Cal Enable
  3. Finally, change the property to be writable. Right click this property and change it to "Change All To Write"
