As far as I know off, you're only option is too set the brocade switch in agmode (keep in mind it will lose its config and you need to check your mappings) and connect it the your cisco switch on a port with NPIV enabled.

From now on zoning is done on your Cisco only.

The switchs Brocade 200E are the Cores and Cisco MDS 9124e must be administrator in the Brocade.

Ok as I understand you can't or won't convert the 200e in AG mode.

Perhaps its possible to put the Cisco switch in a similair mode, but I do not know if this is possible and how to do it if it is.
