My X config file does not have "Option Right Edge" as an operating parameter to modify. How do I get it in there, to reduce the vert. scroll region?...

Starting with xorg-server 1.5, I believe, xorg no longer needs the xorg.conf file in most cases, but uses HAL to autoconfigure. You can still make adjustments, but it's now through a HAL policy.
I don't know what distro you're using, and I'm not sure if distros differ on locations, but for Arch, I can copy an example file to /etc/hal/fdi/policy/ and edit it there.
sudo cp /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/11-x11-synaptics.fdi /etc/hal/fdi/policy/11-x11-synaptics.fdi
Option "RightEdge" "5300"
<merge key="input.x11_options.RightEdge" type="string">5300</merge>
The Arch Wiki on Synaptic Touchpads has some good info that should be applicable to any distro.
