Could a clade of genetically-engineered humans exist on a supercritical pyrohydrothallasic world, for instance? Also, would there be a region on the fringe of human colonization where the archailects had no influence due to being temporally disconnected from those locations (e.g. at a radius of 9000 light-years or so)?

Past the first few thousand years from today or so most Terragens have the option to simply upload and download themselves into new bodies whenever they want to change their bodies, so the limit is simply how high temperature one could design a functional body template for. Exactly how hot it could go is something we don't know, but we do have descriptions for organisms living in magmatic environment - see the Rheolithoids - and even more extreme environments.

The edge of the Terragen Sphere, IIRC, is some 7,600 ly away, although I don't think this takes the displacement of wormholes further from the center into the future into account. Either way, no matter how far away you may be, it's dubious that there is anywhere in the Terragen Sphere that's truly devoid of archailect influence. At least that's how I understand the situation anyway.
