The session file can be thought of a list of w3m history dump. You can
look for w3m-history's docstring for the format of the dump.

You can also see a comment in w3m-session.el. There is aline "format of
session file." and following it, there are simpe description of session file.

I don't think we have one. But we can modify
w3m-session-history-to-save() to drop the history.
