No. Topics can't be set by email or as an integral part of a
subscription. They can only be set by the options CGI.

That doesn't mean you can't post to the options CGI from your own web
form, but the user must be a member, and you have to know the user's
password to do this. In other words, this is a two step process. You
have to first subscribe the user including any confirmation or
approval, and only after that can you set topics.
