Are SCSI drives hot pluggable?

Yes.

system guy just inserted two scsi drives (little server grade drives).
No new related messages appeared in /var/log/messages. Do I need to
reboot to see those drives?

google://"rescan-scsi-bus.sh" for a script that will do the thing it's
named for. Or add the drives manually with:

Caution: rescan-scsi-bus.sh works fine with a 2.4 kernel, but can cause
a 2.6 kernel to hang (or crash, I forget which). At least the version I
happen to have. I have an AHA-2940UW controller with a two-drive Dell
'hot-swap' (SCA) bay. This is NOT any sort of RAID, I just got tired of
having way to much fun with my screw driver when changing drives, for
whatever reason.

...replacing X Y Z W with host, bus, ID, and LUN of the new device.
