It's not altogether clear what you are trying to do.
If you want to run a login session on the port then look at
Ryan Merrick's response.
If you want to use it as a simple port say /dev/cuaa0 then
stty only works after the port is allocated. Try setting instead
/dev/cuaia0 using stty. This sets the defaults for the /dev/cuaa0
port which take effect when the port is opened unless over ridden
by the software attached to the port.
