I think that now there is so little (excluding read-only optical media) of the "true" ROM (stuff that can never be rewritten). Now, just about all "ROM" (technically, EEPROM) can be flashed (rewritten) for the purpose of updating (or others...). So now the term "ROM" is synonymous with firmware. So, custom ROM=custom firmware. Or in the case of emulators, ROM is the image required for the emulator to ... emulate.
