A USB serial adapter won't work with the stock rom (or any custom rom not implementing usb host/otg).
In theory, it's possible to repurpose the usb port's pins as gnd, txd, rxd, and a resistor of specific value that tells the phone to electrically route their signals to pins on the SOC chip with txd & rxd functions at nonstandard voltage levels, but I'm not aware of anyone who's literally gotten it to work on the Epic, yet.
Note that serial via this method has *nothing* to do with usb; it's just temporarily repurposing the pins & connector for serial use.
