I wanted to let you all know how this turned out. The emulator arrived pretty quickly, and worked exactly as promised - the vehicle turns the passenger airbag on, and the SRS light is no longer on. I was able to clear the SRS code, and it has not returned.
The passenger seat belt light now flashes, which of course is pretty logical when I think about it. The car thinks there is a passenger, so they should be wearing a seat belt.
I can't really recommend this approach, but in my case, the car will never have a child in the front seat. My son is ok with just buckling the seat belt if nobody is there, to turn off the seat belt light. For us, it works. I doubt most people would be satisfied with this solution, but it's a lot less expensive than a passenger presence module, and keeps the safety feature of the airbag activated when there is a passenger.
