Default Pissible to change the text of random events?

I was thinking that it would be so much cooler if, when heroes arrived, each hero had a little story about their joining, rather than the generic notice "Soandso has shown up at your gates and wishes to fight for your cause."

Is it possible to mod this?

Fairly surely no. I haven't noticed a command for changing the text of normal events, and I think there's just one description for heroes turning up.

I doubt events will become moddable, because it's very hard to change events' descriptions in text files. If the wrong event is changed, it's very hard to notice that the description doesn't match the event.

I dont think it is.
HOWEVER the developers are always willing to listen if you have some good ideas for some. They might not rush it into the game right now (I think they might be abit burned out) but they do listen and incorporate our ideas. The more varietyin events the better I like a game.

Well, I was thinking since the heroes all have unique names and unique backgrounds, it would also be cool if each hero also has a unique little story that takes place whenever they become enlisted into service. A good example of these would be in the Heroes of Might and Magic games. I'm willing to write up an example, although I don't really know the lore behind the Dominions Universe very well. I know that messages can only be a certain length, so I guess they would have to be relatively short.

Are there files I can open up to view the different descriptions of the heroes without actually having to play the game and hope I can see one?

Im afraid not. They an be extracted. On a linux system its quite easy. But I dont how what it would take on Windows or Mac.
