I'm not sure if it's "easily" implemented, but you can do this type of
measurement error model in STAN (mc-stan.org), defining the predictor
as a combination of a fixed component and a random error component,
which are determined by the data source. (My work uses the results from
an IRT model which produces an estimate and standard error for each
person.) Information here:
