No problem, there's multiple ways to define start URL.

Lynx has configuration options to disable several different features
especially if using Lynx in anonymous user mode. The restrictions you
mention above sound quite doable.

Lynx doesn't itself (but may be configured to use external
applications for images, animations and Java applets) cope with any 
of the these so no worries.

Um, could you give example what you mean by that?

I'm not sure if you can totally remove those (without tweaking the
source code), but again you can make restrictions at least for NNTP 

> - No frames

Lynx has very rough frame support: it can show different frames of 
frameset as regular links alongside text in NOFRAMES-element.

I think with little consultation with the documentation included in 
Lynx distribution creating such configuration will be rather trivial
