I do not know about the first situation.. but for the second one, turn off the scsi emulation and just leave the atapi cd rom and you can access the cd rom with /dev/hdb

or.. turn on the scsi emulation and turn off the atapi cd rom, turn on the scsicdrom and do a MAKEDEV sgall and MAKEDEV sr and you should be able to access your cd rom thru sr0..
