I use Stata 8 and 9 on a regular basis.  I have not been able to use it
within ESS/Emacs either on a Windows machine or a Linux box.
I posted to the list a few months ago about getting a "Symbol's value
as variable is void: inferior-ess-font-lock-keywords" error when I
invoke Stata with M-X stata, but we went nowhere with it.   Someone
else posted about  having similar issues about a month ago, I believe.
If I can be of any help, please let me know.
