the column descriptions you mentioned are configured in 
/etc/xymon/columndoc.csv or $XYMONHOME/etc/columndoc.csv.
Unfortunately there is no /etc/xymon/columndoc.d as far I know. :-( ;-)

It's also possible to set the COLUMNDOCURL in the xymonserver.cfg to have a 
completely different per column documentation page.

Kind regards,
