From the RawDisk documentation I conclude that it is not currently possible for me to use RawDisk to send custom ATA or SCSI commands to storage devices. By custom I refer to commands other than read / write sectors.

I am currently using the Windows IOCTL ATA_PASSTHROUGH_DIRECT / SCSI_PASSTHROUGH_DIRECT which works fine in most cases except when the device is locked by another process.

Am I correct? If not are there undocumented functions available in RawDisk that will achieve this?

As I remember we have added such possibility.

But it would be better if you checked yourself everything required for you. It's necessary because there are a lot of specific requests to specific devices. And some of them can require to make changes in the driver code.
