I have a shell script that works quite well for remapping the keyboard for a
specific xterm. It works on AIX, IRIX, Solaris, and Linux (as well as
others most likely), it doesn't work on Mac OS X.

At one point, when I still had room, I had a VT100 hooked up to the Linux
system I was using for running TOPS-10 and TOPS-20, but I could only get it
working at something like 1200 baud.

Another option I've used is to have a VT420 (my favorite type terminal) and
connect it to a DECserver, and then use LAT to connect to the OS being
emulated. Obviously this tends to be a little tricky to get setup right :^)
I've had it working with TOPS-10 and RSX-11M.

FYI, I don't emulate VAXen.
