I'd like for commands like "grep" and "find file" to open at the root
of my "project" (I know emacs has no knowledge of projects).  Does
anyone do / use something similar?

Why aren't you using find-grep? It's defined as <find . files and grep for something in them>. Changing the "." to another directory, for example an environment variable set before you launch GNU Emacs, the search will start there. You can restrict the search to certain file name(type)s (-name "*.[chm]" or \( -name <sort 1> -o -name <sort 2> -o -name <sort 3> \)). The output can be found in a buffer with hypertext feature: clicking on a line like

        ./src/nsterm.m:4634:      [self keyDown: theEvent];

opens that buffer read-write on the given line. The cursor is positioned at the word you were looking for.
