yes. move hosting.
not trying to be funny (well maybe a little bit), however if you want the control that you are after, then you'll need to move hosting to someone that lets you have a bit more control.

yahoo doesn't support htaccess editing
wordpress, can't edit htaccess on yahoo
... the list goes on of stack overflow and forum posts looking for a work around, pretty much everyone that decided they really needed the access, ended up moving hosts
