I was wondering if there is any quick way to obtain information from the optional registration field without having to code an entire PHP Application.

I apologize. However when I set up my site I made the user submit a bunch of additional information, using the Profile module. Now I am wondering if there is any simple way I could use that information in a node. For example the user had to submit their real name. The node would say "Welcome Some Name". I was wondering if there is any easy way to obtain that information without having to code an entire page of PHP. Like when inserting a username you insert (whatever it actually is) and it displays the Username. I was wondering if I could do the same. For example and it would display "Field Contents".

Getting variables isn't that hard.

<?php
 
echo $user->name;
?>

gives you the username and

<?php
 
echo $user->profile_realname;
?>

or whatever you called your realname field, that will spit out the real name, etc.

Am I completely off the bat here? :)

If you were looking for something drag'n'drop like, thre might be a project somewhere that allows you to do stuff like that, I've been okay with coding so never really looked into it.

Sorry I was running under the assumpion you were making custom profiles. If you're using D5 try adding global $user; somewhere at the top of the page. I know it works for a block but not so certain for a node :|
