.wrk files are full project files with a lot more information in them than just the MIDI. In order to extract the MIDI information you would first have to open the files. Unfortunately this means you'd need either a version Cakewalk or Sonar. The (perhaps) better news is that there's a trial version of Sonar. You should hopefully be able to open your files ...
I don't use Sonar, but it might be that the sidechain input appears as a send/output on the tracks/mixes? This page seems to confirm that: When a plug-in that has a sidechain input is added to a project, that input is exposed to all of the other tracks.
Unfortunately, I don't believe it's possible. In principle, the only interface between your software and the Roland MC-909 is sending MIDI data back and forth. Because of this, sending data over MIDI parameters is the only way any software can automatically configure the instrument for you. EDIT: If your Roland lets you save configurations, and its MIDI ...
I haven't used Sonar, but the way you do it in real life and on the computer is the same. When you sidechain a compressor you tell it to compress based on the input from the sidechain. So you would put a compressor on the music track and sidechain that to the voiceover track. Don't use too fast attack or too slow release. If you do it'll sound unnatural. ...
