When trying to nvram set custom_clientlist, I have a very long string of roughly 3500 chars, and my terminal programs only accept about half of that before it gets cutoff; how can I set the entire string?

Try putting it in a temporary script.
Bash:
#!/bin/sh

nvram set custom_clientlist="328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343328472>23423232<2423232>224343"
