What is the most practical way to keep the email, but have it addressed to: Dear Firstname, (instead of surname)?

Besides that, is there a way to change the content and formatting for the email that the admin receives once a new user is created?

Sam,

 

I have already looked at that documentation. It informs on how to change the wording of the email, but not the context to match what I am looking for. I have seen this

as a possible solution to my first problem, but wanted to know if there were any other ways.

For my second problem I have seen no documentation.

I will review the addons, but I am really looking for a native solution.

I appreciate your help on this matter. What I really need to know is if it is possible to change the email that is sent to the administrator to include

client id's, etc..

I am now able to address the email to FirstName only. Unfortunately, when I receive a new user notification, I get an exact copy of the customer email and not what is described in the contribution. Please help.

Here is my code for /includes/languages/english/create_account.php :
