I think you would have to address this in your web server.

Establish a list creator password via bin/mmsitepass (see its --help)
and tell the user what it is. Depending on how your MTA delivers to
Mailman and whether or not it is 'integrated' you may still need to
deal manually with aliases.

Se the General Options->anonymous_list setting which will replace the
From: with the list address. This is all you can do without modifying
code. You can set Reply-To: to an arbitrary, specific address, also
under General Options.

>4. I would like to remove the attachment / footer containing list

Go to Non-digest options and remove all the text from msg_footer. Do
the same for Digest options->digest_footer if you're concerned about
digests too.

You might find it helpful in geneal to go through the web admin
interface pages and see what's available. Also, see the FAQ
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py>, and see the (abeit old
and/or incomplete) admin docs at <http://www.list.org/admins.html>
(and in the distribution tarball).
