Yup. To the best of my knowledge, SCSI emulation can only be compiled into
the kernel. There is no option to modularise it.

Nope. You want to do this in GRUB:

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.9-31)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.9-31 ro root=/dev/hda2 hdb=ide-scsi
        initrd /initrd-2.4.9-31.img

According to the GRUB documentation, anything after the kernel image
filename is passed by GRUB's kernel command verbatim to the kernel. So the
above should be fine.
