As part of the setup, I would like the
script to run a new shell (i.e. via M-x shell), and then insert a
command into the shell to setup some variables.  I feel like this
should be possible, but the documentation I have read does not mention
any such functionality.  Does it exist?

Yes, there is a way to achieve such things: ~/.emacs_<login shell>.

I have a similiar setup and included in ~/.emacs_tcsh, because tcsh is my login shell:

        echo "Hallöchen!"
        sleep 1
if (-e ~/.emacs_tcsh-init) source ~/.emacs_tcsh-init && rm ~/.emacs_tcsh-init

As you can imagine any (t)csh statement can be used. The same is true for sh, bash, ksh, ash ... The contents of ~/.emacs_tcsh-init is generated from Elisp.

Because this is documented: is it this that you are searching for?
