I have a router (ubiquity USG) and a Brocade FCX648 Layer 3 switch. (I have a second one in a stack, but that's unrelated). The end goal is to be able to connect the switch to my router, provide IPs to other ports on the VLAN, and be able to manage the switch, all from one physical port.

I've connected the router to the switch via eth 1/1/2 and set up VLAN 2 spanning all ports as untagged except 1/1/2 which is dual-mode. Then VLAN 3 for just 1/1/2, which is tagged. This, to my understanding, lets it work as tagged and untagged.

When this port is untagged only, it gets assigned an IP address, and from that IP, I can access SSH, the web portal, etc. However, when tagged (which I need, so the other ports can get IPs from the router), it is no longer assigned an IP, and when trying to manually assign one the interface says you cannot assign an IP to a tagged port.

I feel like I'm probably going about this the wrong way, so I wanted to ask for advice on how to do this, or if such a thing on one cable is even possible.

This is a mix of L2 and L3 ports. Consider L2 and L3 as a different schematic diagrams.

When you place IP on 1/1/2 - you attach this IP to native (untagged) VLAN going through this port. To have an IP attached to vlan2 or vlan3 you should place IP not on hardware interface (which can carry many VLANs) but on virtual VLAN interface.

Try this:

device(config)# vlan 2
device(config-vlan-2)#  tagged ethe 1/1/2
device(config-vlan-2)# router-interface ve 1
device(config-vlan-2)# interface ve 1
device(config-vif-1)# ip address 10.1.2.1/24

This is the document. But be aware of routing - L3 switch is capable of routing (and this is the most benefit of it), so you may want to prevent routing between interfaces.
