In RPG's like Ron Edwards Sorcerer or Geoffry McKinnon's Carcosa, the only thing magic can do is summon, bind, command, and banish otherworldly entities.

Is there a suppliment book, licenced product, etc. out there for Savage Worlds that describes such a set of mechanics?

Thanks!

You might look at Runepunk. It has summoning rules but, a minor warning, it's not Sorcerer or even D&D style summoning. There are more reasons than summoning rules to buy it also, it's an evocative setting. Smile

Well, if all magic can do is summon these entities, why not just make demon summoning the trapping of Powers?

Definitely trappings! A bolt is an angry flying imp, a blast and burst a swarm of said demons. An obscure is a smoke demon etc etc.

Just add a few spells regarding summoning from the Fantasy Companion or the Toolkits.

You can simply use the "Zombie" power, and let the player modify the "Zombie" monster in a Demon. with very few work you could substitute Undead with "Demon", move some Strength to Agility, change some skill etc.
Finally, you could allow for a more powerful "demon" spending 3 PPs more (eventually gaining 1 step in a stat, or adding another Monstrous Ability).

In the Fantasy Companion you'll find another more generic "Summon" power.
