Dive doesn't work in FireRed, I'm not sure if the code is there for it to work, but I suppose we could just write some more, as we could then create things like the underground.
I'm not sure if it helps, but I wrote a routine that finds a connection and stores the map and bank of that connection in a variable. You have to tell it what kind of connection to search for though...
0x5 is a 'Dive' connection, and 0x6 is a 'Emerge' connection.

.align 2

	push {r0-r5,lr}
	ldr r0, mapheader
	ldr r0, [r0,#0xC]
	ldr r1, [r0]
	ldr r0, [r0,#0x4]
	ldr r4, variable
	ldrh r5, [r4]
	mov r2, #0x0
	b search

	cmp r1, #0x0
	beq notfound
	ldrb r3, [r0,r2]
	cmp r3, r5
	beq found
	add r2,#0xC
	sub r1, #0x1
	b search
	pop {r0-r5,pc}

	add r2, #0x8
	ldrb r1, [r0,r2]
	add r2, #0x1
	ldrb r2, [r0,r2]
	lsl r3, r1, #0x8
	orr r3, r2
	strh r3, [r4]
	pop {r0-r5,pc}
.align 2

	.word 0x02036DFC
	.word 0x020370D0 @Last result
All we need from here is to make it warp, and then we can make a tile behavior for it or something. I have absolutely no idea how to make it warp, so if someone could help there, then I could make this thing work...
