I am comfortable changing/editing those if I could locate them. But by logging in via wsftp or looking in the admin panel couldn't find anything for doing it.

An unknown error occurred while uploading the file. Please check that file uploads are enabled, and that your file does not exceed the size of the post_max_size or upload_max_filesize variables.
File Uploads: 1
Max Upload File Size: 7M
Post Max Size: 8M
for the php.ini changes you can also try contacting your host and asking them to do it for you.
And that is just a wee bit over my comfort level to attempt. I am used to working in dreamweaver/html and doing site maintenance via ftp... but I have not worked with php or anything requiring a "shell" environment so I really would not know where to start to even attempt what it showing there.
To make changes like that you need some basic unix skills.
I suggest you find someone who can help you with that in your direct enviroment since they'll need access to it with your username an password.
I am not sure is if its the post_max_size or upload_max_filesize but one of them should do it.
If this works then you can overide the default php.ini settings I am not to sure the correct location to add them, index.php is not the best long term solution but easiest to test.
Ill see if I can remember/find the location for the file manager upload section.
Dashboard » System & Settings » Environment Information
and check the values for:
post_max_size - 10M
upload_max_filesize - 10M
I have a site on JustHost.com (BlueHost.com) which runs PHP v5.4.19
First I placed the following lines in a php5.ini file and placed it in /public_html and that had no effect.
file_uploads = On upload_max_filesize = 100M post_max_size = 100M upload_tmp_dir = /tmp/
Next I changed the file name from php5.ini to php.ini and everything worked fine. A recheck of the Environment Info then read:
post_max_size – 100M
upload_max_filesize - 100M
