Why don't you just use Tagzilla? Doesn't it do basically the same thing 
to the signature?

It is possible, but you need to add the text fields to a particular 
Account Setting panel. For example, you would need to add it to 
am-smtp.xul --Outgoing Server (SMTP) panel--, not AccountManager.xul. 
Those files are located in the unjarred files at chrome/content/messenger/.
