Is it possible to either change a Mailman setting so that the "results" page is on our Web site; OR how would I go about having the "subscription results" page appear in a popup so the visitors will stay on our site?

You can edit the results page by going to the list admin "Edit the
public HTML pages and text files" link. The only restriction is you
can't add any javascript or other script type actions.

Since you are using a hosted Mailman, you can't really make other
Mailman changes that would affect this. What you can do is make your
subscribe form post to a PHP script that would do the subscribe and
receive the result andf format that for the user. See the FAQ at
