Ok, I'm getting a lot of helpful input on how to do this (including the
email below and some private emails not shown), but it's a bit piecemeal
and not comprehensive.
While I'm trying to figure these things out from these various inputs, I
Is there a bona fide procedure somewhere in a wiki page, manual, handbook,
etc that speaks to this?

There's a script you can run, maintenance/rebuildMessages.php or the
like. But the best way would be to go and find the message you want to
change on the Special:AllMessages page, then follow the link and change it
there in the wiki database as is.
When you install MediaWiki, it copies the default Language.php settings
into the database and ignores that Language.php file afterwards (except in
1.4.x there is an switch in DefaultSettings.php that tells it to just use
the file and not the database).
Make sure you're adding settings to LocalSettings.php and not changing the
DefaultSettings.php file. :)
