For reasons that will soon become obvious, I can’t answer your question
exactly as asked.  But maybe I can help anyway.

I don’t use Wanderlust, but VM, which I do use, has certain similarities
to Wanderlust.  I was pondering how to use emacs-w3m with VM not too
long ago, and it seemed kind of daunting.  At that point, I noticed that
it was possible to use w3m directly with VM, basically redirecting w3m’s
stdout to VM’s stdin.  I tried it, and I’m quite pleased with the
results.  Maybe Wanderlust lets you do this, too?
