Yes, you would; either of those would do. I have shortcuts on my desktop to start several games exactly like that, except that both my shortcuts and pSX Author's example are for images rather than CDs. But, with a reasonable size hard drive in your console and, presumably, nothing else but the OS, drivers and the emu, it's worth thinking of doing with images - you could have quite a library just on your hard drive! ;-) I'm not sure whether you could do this with a CD drive as well, but it's possible.
Edit: open a command line box and navigate to your pSX emu directory. Type 'psxfin -?' (without quote marks, obviously) and you'll get a list of commands you can use with it. Yes, looks like you can start it with a path to the CD. Have a look at the options.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to just put a disk in and have it boot as Playstation disks aren't auto booting. If you think of it, you can't do that on an actual Playstation, either.
