Yes, the variable you may have to set is only `w3m-command'.

During loading w3m.elc, it will initially determine the value of
`w3m-command' if it has not been set purposely in the ~/.emacs
file.  It is searched in `exec-path' directories in order of
w3m, w3mmee and w3m-m17n.  So, if you prefer w3mmee rather than
w3m even though both commands are available, you have to set the
`w3m-command' variable as "w3mmee" in your ~/.emacs file.

And then w3m.elc determines the value of the `w3m-type' variable.
It actually runs the command specified as the `w3m-command'
variable to investigate it.
