I don't know. Maybe xorg.conf is still the right place for that.

Yes, you need an xorg.conf to use a different graphics driver.

I only said that xorg.conf should no longer be used to set options for input
devices, because those are now handled by HAL, and options can be set in
HAL FDI files. It is also not needed to get graphics up with the default
settings. But to set custom options for graphics, it is still the place to
set them up (unless you can/want to set them per user using XRandR, but you
can't switch the driver that way).
