go for it!.. any links or resources you find for main ubuntu, or main linux
will be relevant.. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization
for example

what i did, in a similar case.. i made a close of the OS as i wanted it.
when restoring the image, i changed the hostnames as i wanted.

it really depends on what you want. if you want a bootable USB stick with
ubuntustudio on it, that has a "custom" hostname, you can just do a normal
installation onto that USB stick, and set the name at install..

to specifically answer this question, i just dont use a live instance. i
install, and find that meets my needs better... does it for you?
