I'm not sure I understand the question.  But if I do, the answer seems simple
to me.  Although it's not a feature of HTT, why wouldn't you just manually
change index.html after the mirror is complete?
If you're only talking about 10 or so links, then this doesn't seem too big a
task.  Just edit index.html with a text editor.  If you're unfamiliar with
html, just look for the "< a href=" tags, find where they close with a ">"
then modify the text between that and the "< /a>".

e.g. change
< a href=< /a>
< a href= --> Tom's Site< /a>

Make a copy of the file before changing it, then immediately make another
(3rd) copy after you save the changes.  (suggestion: index.orig, index.html,
index.edit)  If you ever update or re-mirror, you can delete the old
index.orig, rename the "updated" index.html to index.orig, then re-copy
index.edit back to index.html (assuming nothing relevant has changed;
otherwise, correct it manually again).

Just a thought...
