Many of our production machines are set up in a way that we have to:

I've perused the docs, and don't see any way to do this.

Is it possible in Tramp?  I hope?  I'd love to be able to connect
through my local emacs, and edit files out there on our system.

Yes, it is possible (I assume you are using Tramp 2.1). See the Tramp doc:

(info "(tramp) Multi-hops")

describes an example, how to do this.
