What about changing the coding system just before opening the file ?
C-x RET c utf-16-be RET C-x C-f <the file>

It would  change the coding  system locally to  the opened file  rather than
changing it globally for the emacs session.

Then the  OP could just add  the first line as  you described in  1) for the
next time he will open it.
