Simulating an Unknown Continuous Distribution doesn't present any new problems if there are enough observations. Make a histogram of the continuous observations and use the frequencies to do a simulation of a discrete distribution. You can add some "frills" like returning a uniform (not normal) random number over the range of the histogram bar rather than the midpoint.
