Ok. I guess I will need to learn how to write OVAL and XCCDF content....

Writing SCAP isn't the only way to contribute :)

If you can create guidance (just text) for a tool, people here can help convert to XCCDF. On the OVAL side, if you can help us understand what regex/files/system attributes need to be examined for a pass/fail, that's a huge jumping off point too.

Besides that, my coworker and I just noticed that although we fail the AIDE test, we are passing the aide_periodic_cron_checking test. This might be a bug??? Can anyone replicate?

Skimming the code, likely a bug.  Do you mind opening a ticket? The OVAL code checks to see if aide is installed:
    <criteria operator="AND">
      <extend_definition comment="Aide is installed" definition_ref="package_aide_installed" />
      <criteria operator="OR">
        <criterion comment="run aide daily with cron" test_ref="test_aide_periodic_cron_checking" />
        <criterion comment="run aide daily with cron" test_ref="test_aide_crond_checking" />
        <criterion comment="run aide daily with cron" test_ref="test_aide_var_cron_checking" />
This was recently fixed with https://github.com/OpenSCAP/scap-security-guide/pull/631 (which is actually listed above by Shawn)
