First of all, see
for information on where to store an edited version of subscribe.html
to be used by a single list.

As to the other part of your question, the replacements for the <MM-*>
tags that appear in various templates are defined in the module
Mailman/HTMLFormatter.py. In particular, <MM-List-Name> is defined as
the value of the real_name attribute of the list which is just the
case-preserved list name. The <MM-Mailman-Footer> tag generates the
HTML for the web page footer that looks like

listname list run by owner at example.com
listname administrative interface (requires authorization)
Overview of all example.com mailing lists

If you want to change this footer on one list-specific version of the
template, just remove the <MM-Mailman-Footer> tag from the template
and replace it with whatever HTML you want.
