Look at http://www.emacswiki.org - you can get PL/SQL mode there -
I've been using it daily - on the whole it works well - it does have
some minor bugs and I have sent some corrections and bug reports to
the author, but have never received a response and the mode has not
been updated since late last year. 

There is also some info on running modes for Pro*C and other tips
relating to using sql mode, additional functions which are quite
useful and there is some information at this site on writing your own
mode etc.
