How do we tell stepson

That he won't be going back to BM tomorrow and that he now lives here because SD will now have his room there?

DH and I have been putting it off all day. It's just weird. Surely normal people would take a bit of time to decide this, but not BM. Poor kid is going to be heart broken, he is a real mama boy and really loves her, despite how useless she is as a mother. And I am not a good substitute for his mom. 

How should we (well DH probably) go about this? I honestly don't even know where to begin.

Only because I have people playing mind games from every direction, and I don't even know how to move my game pieces anymore.

I really, really hope you like the ss more than you do the sd.

I do. Very good kid, very much like my own son.

I would let his dad handle explaining that he and his sister have changed places due to her actions in the past month.  Will he still be welcome to visit or call mom to keep in touch?  I would have not waited this long to talk with him about what is going on.

Hmmm. First piece of advice, definitely let your husband handle it. If it was us, I would tell my hubby to not be mean about Emily's mom, but be truthful. (We don't lie to Emily ever!) No matter how worthless of a mom the BM is, your step child clearly loves her and down talking her will only make it worse.
