In a script, I know you access built-in attributes of work items with the class but how do you access attributes that are not built-in?

For custom attribiutes  the same should work. For example, you can use the workItem.getValue("AttributeID") to access the value of a custom attribute.
If you are starting with Attribute customization then I would recommend to go through this although there are several articles available around on this area.

Yes; I've been through this document and haven't been able to set anything outside of the attribute ID and a default (hard-coded) value.

It also seems like it take the tool a long time (30 minutes) to take the change of a new script.
