One last thing: is cold-pressed linseed oil the same as raw linseed oil?

Not quite.
Its the level of purification that differs.
I'm guessing you're looking at an art supply hose because of the terminology?
What you need is probably closest to "Stand Oil", or "Bodied Oil" essentially the same thing.

Cold-pressed may be only option at this point.

I don't think it'll be a major thing.
One is just more purified that the other.
Do you have a health food store or supermarket with an organic section?
"Flax seed oil" is the same thing but food grade.

Apparently not in Alaska. I’ve been told it’s now considered hazmat and, since the rules changed, needs to be barged up here.

Results will vary depending on color of wood. 
This is Stand Oil from an Art Supply Store and this is what the finish looks like on my rifle...
