Can someone point me to what I have to do to edit this particular variable? I've got the sneaking suspicion that this stuff is not going to be easy to gain access to on the hosting company's server.

You are making this more difficult than it needs be, The replacement
for the <MM-List-Subscription-Msg> tag is the result of a procedure in
Mailman/HTMLFormatter.py named FormatSubscriptionMsg(), and it creates
an 'appropriate' message based on the list's subscribe_policy,
private_roster and umbrella_list settings.

However, if you don't like the generated message for your list, just
edit the list's *General list information page* and replace the
<MM-List-Subscription-Msg> tag with whatever text you want.
