I got it to work once I figured out the JEM stuff. In the end, these are the steps that worked for me. Note: these are likely not the minimal steps, just one working solution.
1) Fully uninstall any old version of VE or JEM (not just disable)
2) via the Europa update site, install prerequisites for WTP:
3) Install the 3.0M1 milestone release of WTP SDK, which is the authoritative source of JEM 2.0.0:
3b) Click the 3.0M1 build
3c) Download the wtp-sdk zip
3d) Unpack the .zip file somewhere
3e) In that extracted folder, there is an "eclipse" subdir
3f) In that subdir, create a file called ".eclipseextension"
3h) In eclipse, go to Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration
3i) Click "Add an Extension Location"
3j) Select the WTP "eclipse" subdir from above
4) Install the build of VE:
4b) Click "Visual Editor patched as in bug 202562"
4c) Click org.eclipse.visualeditor-126.96.36.199709121813.zip
4d) Unpack the .zip file somewhere
4e) In that extracted folder, there is an " org.eclipse.visualeditor-188.8.131.52709121813" subdir
4f) Rename that subdir to "eclipse"
4g) In that "eclipse" subdir, create a file called ".eclipseextension"
4i) In eclipse, go to Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration
4j) Click "Add an Extension Location"
4k) Select the VE "eclipse" subdir from above
