I'm controlling my JVC projector via RS232 from a GC100, and use iRule. Very simple if you're already familiar with iRule. And yes, RJ45 to RS232 adapters at both ends works fine. Depending on the device types, if needed you can do the DTE/DCE send/receive pin swapping in the adapter (keep the wiring a straight pass-through so you don't confuse yourself years later).
My projector has a 12V trigger output that can be controlled - what model projector? But yes, as AV_ said, 12V triggers are just that simple.
