You like to verify the logic in the schematic where it's used. Just as the firmware is preprogrammed into a Mask Rom at the Factory, these CS pins are also configurable at the factory as either Hi or Lo level inputs by the customer - per their design/schematics. The rest of the chip is straight forward if just you want to read the contents - eg. address, data and power.

The 9216 is a 24-pin
DIP, with dual-active low chip selects, and uses both +5V and +12V. The
board these are installed on can use either 9216s or 2716s, but not a mix
of both. Here's the info on the ROM board:
Table 4.0 lists the strapping for 9216 vs 2716, and there's a schematic
at the end. Any pointers?
Only these pins are diff from the 2716
Pin 21= A10
Pin 20= CS1***
Pin 19= +12v
Pin 18= CS1***
***check logic level in schematic
I only looked as far as the page with Table 4, I didn't notice earlier but further in that pdf on page 16, you can see already on this schematic that these Roms are made with Active Lo inputs on both CS pins. I guess that's where you were looking before when you stated this.
So pins 18 and 20 on these Roms are not an issue, these are the same as a 2716 - ie, Active Lo inputs. You only have to worry about pins 19 and 21 for your adapter.
