Well, I didn't buy a copy of the game. I walked into Gamestop, asked if they had any used copies of the game, and asked to see them. The guy at the counter knew what I was up to and said it was cool so I just did the whole downgrade in the store.
"Ah, so you're downgrading? You wanna play downloaded games in the future instead of buying them? That's cool, you can do it right here. In fact, I'll do it for you!"
2. \PSP\GAME150\PCEP is the correct dir for the EBOOT, but you need the PCEP% folder as well. Since it isn't included with that particular program (it usually is), you need to make it yourself. For that, you can use SeiPSPTool. Note! When using this program, it will output the homebrew to the GAME folder, so you have to manually move it to GAME150. Also, it tends to give the folders odd names, so I suggest renaming them to your own preference (i e PCEP and PCEP%, which is simple enough).
3. All homebrew goes under GAME150. If it doesn't work (i e isn't 1.50 homebrew, usually stated in the readme), try GAME (never GAME303).
4. In PSX2PSP, press OPTIONS (lower left corner) and input a 9 under COMPRESSION LEVEL.
I haven't been using the PSX emulator much (just for FFIX, because I was planning on replaying it, and playing it on the go is so much more conveinant than hooking my PS2 up again), but I'm starting to rip some of my old games that I haven't replayed recently - next up for me is Parasite Eve, then probably on to Tomba (I used to LOVE Tomba, but I haven't played it years).
