How would I enter emacs-lisp such as

WITHIN emacs itself? I do not have access to the .emacs file as I am using
an emacs instance within another program run as another user.

I am no expert but maybe you can write all your customisations in a file where you have write access and eval the entire file at the start of your session?

If your customisations are a couple of lines then you can always write it in the *scratch* buffer, and use `C-j' or mark the region and do `M-x eval-region'.

Hope this helps.
