I have a general idea what to do, but no way to execute it. I can get all three golems stuck on a broken wall directly NW of them. But... How do I kill the golems without rotating? There's clearly some special maneuver I gotta make to do exactly that. The room name has given me enough hints, it probably involves strange diagonal movement in some fashion, but how?

EDIT: H&S, though I feel I thought a bit TOO far out the box.

No, it's impossible. When Beethro places the mimic, the nearest golem is at (1) in the image, with a wall to his SE:

That golem will stay put until Beethro passes either directly south of him, or directly east. If south, then after that the golem will always be in Beethro's column but north of him, until eventually catching up with him and killing him. With no walls or other objects to block the golem, there's no way Beethro can escape.
