If I decide to do the one that is like this:
List-request at domain.com
The "command" goes in the subject or body?
In this case unsubscribe would be in which? Or does it not matter?

Please read the FAQ. A search of the FAQ for footer should turn up the
answers to both these questions.

Either one, they're synonymous (assuming List and Listname are

Send an unsubscribe command to list-request at ...

For the first two, the subject is ignored so the answer to your second
question is yes.

You can simply put some text and <mailto:list-unsubscribe at example.com>,
but whether or not this will be 'clickable' depends entirely on the
recipient's MUA. Even if you make the footer look like HTML, it will
be in a text/plain part of the message so it won't be rendered as HTML.
