is it possible to move the footer (not the widgetized one, i'm talking about the #socket .copyright-note) all way down to the bottom of the page, make it 100% width (no overflow) and give it a custom background-color?

That would take a good bit of customization and a good bit of hacking the theme to get right. If you want to pursue it, google "how to make a sticky footer" for a start. That will at least get you started on how to get the sticky footer effect as its always a bit of a trick. You might even want to opt for just adding a new socket type footer and hide the current one so that the addition is completely outside of the main wrap and other elements.
In that case, you'd just be adding a new div and classes to footer.php and custom.css which isn't as in depth as modifying the current #socket.
