I have not been able to find samples/tutorials/documentation that understandably illustrates how to add custom global settings to the dashboard settings page... how to integrate on the settings page, similar to how the Default channel service for messages is added at the bottom, but I haven't gotten my version of that code to work. Help appreciated. Thanks

Your best bet is to look at the code of existing modules. Vandelay Industries is one example of a module that adds settings.

Piotr wrote a couple of articles a while back on Orchard settings, part 1 dealt with global settings: http://www.szmyd.com.pl/blog/how-to-add-settings-to-your-content-parts-and-items
