:Now that I'm even more confused, what would work?? What could the Egyptian Diadem Rats breed to in the corn family? What should I look for?

Well, the apparent reason that you're confused, is that you aren't acknowledging the fact that the diadem snakes (Spalerosophis diadema ssp) aren't even true rat snakes, but are more closely related to racers. As I said before, you can't hybridize Old World snakes with New World snakes. The Spalerosophis are native to northern Africa, and the Near East, the Pantherophis are native to North America. There's no species "in the corn family" to which your diadems can be bred - period.
