For the moment I would just like to auto update the PATH env variable to include my own bin directory on /data with some of the more useful busybox commands symlinked and maybe add some cooler stuff later. I've done something similar in dd-wrt with a special nvram variable to point to a script, but I don't know if there is an equivalent here. Thanks.

You can, but you would have to do the modifications with an extracted system image, re-squashfs it back up, and then flash it back to the device.
