It is unclear why you don't want to use the extract by mask option. The only other way I know of is to set the mask through the environment settings: ArcGIS Help 10.1 - Mask (Environment setting).
I don´t know if ArcMap 9.3.1 has the tool. But there is a Tool called "KML to Layer". You need tho export the temporary layer to shp. If not use this online conversion: http://www.zonums.com/online/kml2shp.php
