Is it possible to tailor a verification message based on the category chosen? So for cateogry A when a registered user submits an item for a blog they get one message about awaiting confirmation from the administrator and thanking them for Message A for Category A and when content is submitted for category B, the user gets a different message, of course saying something similar about administrative approval but thanking them for their submission on Category B.

Can this be done?

Yes, it's possible, but with a K2 plugin triggered on the "onAfterK2Save" event. You would grab the "catid" request variable (=the category ID) and display a different message accordingly.

Is there an example you can provide? My php skills are basic. If an update is done to Joomla will the code be overwritten? Is there an extension or plugin that can do it?

Not out of the box. You'd have to have a custom built plugin for that.
