    Wondering if any of the third party firmware is offering supports for something similar to a HOSTS file..

    if you mean something similar to a hosts file on the router that the systems on the other end can use to look up addresses than what you're looking for is a DNS server which as far as I know isn't avalible on any of the firmwares [correct me if i'm wrong] You can run a DNS server on any remote machine and setup your router to send the ip of that machine as the DNS server for your network if you want... you can get bind for windows or bind for *nix if you want...
