You can override the definition of ADMIN_CATEGORIES in mm_cfg.py. See
the definition in Defaults.py for more information.

This controls what pages/sections are visible in the web admin
interface. However, even if you omit 'general' from the list, the
General Options category (which contains max_message_size) will always
be available.

The only other way is to edit the actual Mailman/Gui/ modules that
define the pages.

Yes, and to change just one or a few settings. I.e. config_list doesn't
change anything that isn't in its input.
