The kernel of NetBSD supports multiboot now?  Or maybe it's referring to
something else?

I'm referring to NetBSD-HEAD, not RELEASE.  I'm sure you will understand
the commit messages better than I do (search for multiboot):

What's the exact error message?

free magic is broken at 0x5cb60: 0xbb<etc>

On FreeBSD I use grub0.95 to load /boot/loader as 'the kernel' and
everything just works.  Using grub2, I can't tell exactly what I am
supposed to use, e.g. insmod, module, or [whatever].  There is no
'kernel' command any more, right?

Someone should write a new loader for that.

Would it be better to add multiboot support to the kernel and eliminate
