Bob, I might be able to help with your specific request for a testing space, but not at HG. I have a client who has a dedicated server at Rackspace. Haven't done any of teh testing you're speaking of...but as a rule the server is fast and problem free. Rackspace has a way of managing all of those 10 'various variables' with excellence. His server is about 2x the price of the HG option you mentioned. You might look at mosso.com and consider a 'cloud' server as an affordable alternative.
