Does github allow repository owners to send email directly to people who
have submitted PRs or at least, people with commit privileges (in this
case, those whose have done particular merges)?

No. People have to provide explicit permission to expose their email address. Otherwise the best we have are @ mentions in a comment.

Several of these were closed without merging and should not and cannot
be backported.  For instance, you closed
after you submitted and merged a replacement.

Stripping backport labels off of rejected PRs could be considered.  But
this would toss information needed for a new PR if the bpo issue is
open.  Expecting either the submitter or merged of a replacement to go
back and clean up the original seems a bit much.  The submitter might
not be able to, and the merger might not know or forget that the PR is a
replacement.  Perhaps rejected PRs should just be ignored.

Replacing 'closed' with 'merged' excludes rejected PRs.

The 2.7 backport of https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/3639
is yours.
