I'm having trouble starting a qemu instance of gentoo.

What networking device should I pick in qemu to have it detected by the livecd's initramfs?

Use https://sysresccd.org instead of livecd.

shentino,

A qemu instance it for all intents and purposes, provides fake hardware.
When you run lspci in the guest, what hardware does it have?
qemu provides a choice when you configure your guest.

If your host kernel has virtio support, guests may use the virtio interfaces.
This avoids using emulated hardware at all.
