The SCSI port(s) should be addressed via the SCSI Manager in the Apple Toolbox. This is the safest way to program.
Find the details in the OS_Utils.sit.hqx file on http://www.apple.com/developer/

The same is true for palying around with the serial ports (ADB/printer/modem/USB). Access them via toolbox routines and your code will be safe in the future.
See the ADB manager, PPC manager, AppleTalk manager, Communication Toolbox etc.

Get Inside Macintosh either online, on CD ROM or the old fashioned paperbacks, though they may be a bit outdated.

I use Metrowerks CodeWarrior Pro3, the languages I use are C and C++.

Here's some code to find serial ports:

#include <CommResources.h>
#include <CRMSerialDevices.h>

#include <stdio.h>

main()
{
    CRMRec      c;
    CRMRecPtr   cPtr = &c;
    CRMSerialPtr    serialPtr;

    printf("Listing of available serial ports\n");
    InitCRM();

    c.crmDeviceType = crmSerialDevice;
    c.crmDeviceID   = 0;
    while (cPtr != nil) {
        cPtr = (CRMRecPtr)CRMSearch((QElemPtr)cPtr);
        if (cPtr) {
            serialPtr = (CRMSerialPtr)cPtr->crmAttributes;
            printf("We have a port called: %#s\n", *(serialPtr->name));
            printf("   input driver named: %#s\n", *(serialPtr->inputDriverName));
            printf("  output driver named: %#s\n\n", *(serialPtr->outputDriverName));
            c.crmDeviceID = cPtr->crmDeviceID;
        }
    }
}
