comment Does every webserver have an httpd.conf file?
If you can access the directory "/etc" on the server then you can probably access it the conf file. If your access is limited to the web directory then no.

Yes, all mainstream web servers will have some type of configuration file. The configuration controls the entire server, so in the case like yours it's probably a shared host so you'll have to use overrides through .htaccess . They can't allow you to change the main config file because it would impact the entire server.

On #1, two things, if your site frequently sends emails to non-existent gmail accounts (for instance) Gmail may choose to just throw all emails you send to the spam folder. That would hurt your legitimate gmail users. Say the bot put a real gmail account, but not to someone that actually registered, that person may then mark the registration email from you as spam, and your reputation with gmail goes down.

comment Hijacked meta description
Sometimes there's a hidden script (hidden = converted to a type of encoding that doesn't read with the naked eye) in the page's code that reads the user agent and causes a different page to display to that user agent. You'll have to scour the entire page and looking for areas that don't look correct.

comment SSL not working on home page
FYI: Even after you get the SSL padlock fixed it will continue to say: "Website does not provide identity information". I believe you have to buy a higher quality (quality = cost) certificate that maybe requires greater validation.
