Sure, maybe look for another host :)

The location of the session files is controlled by php not phpgw.  You
should set the tmp dir to /home/<user>/tmp, this is used for email
attachments and filemanager uploads, so best keep it out of a shared dir.

It looks like your host does not allow you to use the php_value
directives in your .htaccess :(  Maybe hassle them about it.  If they
need it explained to them, give them my email address and I will try to
not call them stupid ;)
