While you cannot customize the default welcome mail for Office 365 Groups, disabling the welcome mail is possible with an extra parameter in the Set-UnifiedGroup cmdlet in Exchange PowerShell: -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$false. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/users-and-groups/set-unifiedgroup
Use this as a part of a custom group creation flow if you would like to restrict and/or customize the welcome mail for many groups across your tenant.

does the disabling of the welcome message also work for guests?

We’re still thinking about this suggestion. In the meantime, please be aware that using Dynamic Membership rules will define membership criteria that will force individuals to remain as members of a group. This issue was also highlighted in the comments below. Please keep the feedback/votes coming! Thanks!
Thanks to everyone for your feedback and votes on this item. We’re working through a couple of options and hope to have more information shortly. It’s a very difficult problem to solve since group membership is consumed across many different aspects of Microsoft 365. Thanks for your patience and keep the feedback coming!

We’ve recently shipped the ability to change the SharePoint Site URL associated with a Microsoft 365 Group (formerly Office 365 Group). https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=56205. This can be done via the SharePoint Admin Center. The site URL can be changed on a per-site basis, but currently we don’t have plans to allow admins to change the global default from “/sites” to something different.
