I'm not entirely sure I understand exactly what you are asking, but in answer to one of your questions, yes, you can add manual routes to the routing tables with the route command. Whether this is what you want to do or not is another issue altoghter. You may wish to setup a /30 subnet if you have a block of IPs to work with and then use nat to push them through your router. As far as roamers needing to change their DNS settings, I roam all over the place and use the same DNS servers all the time. Perhaps all you need is someone to run slave DNS servers for you...you could easily forward port 53 tcp/udp through nat to your internal nameservers.
