Just as in the example. I would draw the paths in Illustrator, that way I could use Blend to make the paths. Copy the paths, paste into InDesign then thread them. It’s tedious.
Just to add what Scott said:
You have to use the Text on Path Tool that's behind the Text Tool to do text on path with every imported path segment, then you can thread the single text paths to one single story.
That's what I thought I should do, though I hoped there's a more elegant way.

Hi kol28429812 ,
hm. At least a bit of that task is scriptable easily: Activating the text on path and thread to one story.
Important: Select the path segements in the order you like to see them threaded!
Then run the script. If you are not satisfied with the result just undo it and start with a new selection.
// EDIT: Repaired the damaged script code.
The code in my answer was damaged last year by moving this thread from the old InDesign forum to this new one.
NOTE: How to save the code to a script file, how to install the script file and how to use it from the Scripts panel in InDesign see: https://www.indiscripts.com/pages/help#hd0sb2

Simply something like this!

FWIW: Repaired the script code in my answer above.
