If this is for HTML output, you can set the stylesheet
parameter 'emphasis.propagates.style' to 1, and then
the role value on emphasis is copied into the class
attribute for the HTML <span> element that wraps around
the output.  For example:

<emphasis role="smallcaps">...</emphasis>


<span class="smallcaps">...</span>

Then you can add styles to a CSS stylesheet like:

.smallcaps {font-variant: small-caps;}

Be sure to also set the 'html.stylesheet'
parameter to your stylesheet name, and copy the stylesheet
file to the output directory.

If this is for FO output as well, you will need to
customize the template that matches 'emphasis' from
fo/inline.xsl in a customization layer.  The customization
could respond to the role attribute to set the appropriate
XSL font properties in the <fo:inline> output.  Do 
you need more help with that?
