I am unsure I understand this idea.
lets use shellworld as I would want to work where I already know access on a high port functions. I would have a user name and hostname listening on this higher port, but that actually forwards me to my domain shell account hosted on dreamhost?
where is the configuring  actually done, is this like a proxy?

I wouldn't expect them to, on shared hosting.

However, this brings up another possibility.  If you have shell access
on dreamhost, which is what it sounds like to me, there is no technical
reason you couldn't run a forwarder there that listens on a high port
and turns the connection around to the local port 22.  (Of course, "no
technical reason" is not "no reason".  I wouldn't do it without first
checking with dreamhost to ensure it wouldn't upset them.)
