Well, possibly I misunderstand, but the cleanest approach is:

Have a place in /usr/local for ROMs to go.  Possibly symlink it into
the /usr/share directory if that seems natural 'upstream'. Possibly
modify the binary or some default config file to look in that place.

Possibly place some user documentation telling them what's going on.
