I'm afraid you won't find the exact thing you're looking for.  CEDET's
Semantic offers some completion mechanisms, but none as integrated and
complete as you see in some IDEs.  `semantic-idle-summary-mode' is
probably your best bet for parameter lists.

I doubt there's anything offering syntactic completions with type checks.


You might find some more stuff at
http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/emacs-en/WhatAreTheNeedsOfProgrammers
and
http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/emacs-en/HowSemanticFulfillsThoseNeeds

But if you're looking for the IntelliSense fix[0], Emacs is probably not
the best place.
