Is there a way to plug a floppy emulator on the RS232 or the parallel output and thus avoiding to un-plug the inbuilt floppy reader ?
I am no expert on those devices but I do not believe there is any viable ready to go solution to do this. Sorry.
Since your floppy cable has two suitable floppy connectors you should be able to connect the floppy emulator as a second floppy drive though.
Your motherboard has one of the built in barrel batteries that leak and destroy the mainboard by the way. They tend to leak especially when being loaded. I suggest until this battery is removed you avoid turning the computer on except for transferring your hdd data.
