If you mean the code you quoted then while it is Emacs Lisp it's
pretty similar to Scheme. I'm not an expert though I'll try to
decipher something here :-)

  stringp -> string?
  I don't know what expand-file-name is (I suspect it somehow
  processes the path it has, use Emacs help to find the proper
  info about it), though I see that if geiser-guile-init-file is
  string, init-file takes its value.

  IIUC, q-flags is a variable which becomes equal to "-q" if
  geiser-guile-load-init-file-p is not true (again, p == ? at the
  end of a function name)

  And next, we have a definition of the command line as a list

>   `(,@(and (listp geiser-guile-binary) (cdr geiser-guile-binary))
  listp -> list?
  if geiser-guile-binary is a list, insert here the value of its
  cdr. I don't know what its car would be, however

  Now, flags
>     ,@q-flags "-L" ,(expand-file-name "guile/" geiser-scheme-dir)

  q-flags is mentioned above, the next is "-L", and then
  "guile/${geiser-scheme-dir}", I use such a notation assuming it
  would be more convenient to read for you
>     ,@(apply 'append (mapcar (lambda (p) (list "-L" p))
>                              geiser-guile-load-path))
  here geiser-guile-load-path is taken and, I suspect it is a list
  :-), each its path is added with the string "-L" prepended

>     ,@(and init-file (file-readable-p init-file) (list "-l" init-file)))))

  and eventually, if init-file is defined above, and there is
  corresponding file with such a name, load its source code using
  the option "-l ${init-file}"

IIUC, you have to somehow redefine this function and add your
options to achieve what you want.

There are another way though. Just run in terminal

  guile --listen ${YOUR-OPTIONS}

and run geiser not with 'run-geiser', but using the command
'connect-to-guile' which will connect to the running process.
