3. The emulator freezes and the ROM never loads
Additional Information I have tested this with multiple cassettes, and with each one, it does this behavior

Sadly, you need to understand that most computers/consoles are not set up to AUTO LOAD any type of cassette images so you must initiate the LOAD function via the interface (which you do) and then enter the MAME menus and start the tape (PLAY) to start the loading. I detailed how to do that before in a issue you raised about FM-7 Cassettes not loading which works for most all instances where cassettes need to be started.

Closing as invalid report.

Please refrain from posting any more cassette failures until you learn how to operate the hardware in question.
