I'm not sure about terms but I'll do my best.
On my '01, there is an adjustable screw that stops the throttle control from going any further when you have the gas pedal floored. My question is if I adjust it so there is more room for the throttle to open more, will my RPM's climb at a quicker pace(making my car faster)? It seems to act as a govenor or something similar. What's the deal?

If the screw is properly set, the throttle will be wide open. It does not act as a governor. The ECU controls the engine.

could it be that the screw is there to prevent the throttle from opening beyond wide open and actually closing again?

look down a throttle body sometime and look at it.

I can't even tell from the orignal question where this screw is - the pedal mechanism? The throttle body?

I think he's talking about the round thing that the gas pedal and cruise control cables go.
