Just a note - if an otherwise free and acceptable for fedora emulator
can't work (or do something useful) without a non-free firmware or ROM
then such emulator can't be accepted into fedora.

I don't think you can mention RPMFusion in a README.Fedora, that is
probably against policy. You can put a general note that one must get
the ROMs from someplace and place them in /usr/share/spectrum-roms/
An another question is which package should own the aforementioned
directory; it might be best to make all Spectrum emulators own it.
