I don't use mobi, but I'd say the answer is yes. Having fixed width html is very unusual, but relatively common for txt. Calibre has a special switch to handle that case for txt - "Use print formatting." I believe the idea is to convert the html to txt, which will bring in all the "bad" CR/LF paragraphs, then strip them in the conversion with that option.

the exact spam message that I want to remove ( which may not be a header/footer) but is throughout some books is this ( in extra-annoying bold text! )
"generated by ABC Amber LIT Converter, http://www.processtext.com/abclit.html"

could I create a rule somhow that yould nuke all instances of that phrase ?
Yes. It's been asked about many times and I've seen several posts on it, I'd suggest you search here for the best nuke string.
