How about Imarja?  Is she saved for the Nochet supplement?

She is not in the Cults book.  Possibly for Nochet, but she's not really worshiped in any way that provides direct benefits.

Surely she offers the Summon Geese rune magic spell?

Imarja in all likelihood is another name for Glorantha, a deity that only deities can likely commune with.  Or perhaps it is another name for the Invisible God(dess).

At times of crisis, she seems to offer something, but it is not at the level of accessible Rune magic.

Then, rather, a subcult of a more accessible god based around an Imarjan intervention in that god(dess)'s myths might offer Summon Geese?

If you want Summon Geese, then I'd add Isbarn the Goose Girl as a subcult of Ernalda.  

Imarja's "interactions" include the goddesses sacrificing and cutting up Imarja (the Three Houses story); the "revelation" of the Egg in the Pillow (the script on the stones that is the Nochet Charter); and the sacrifice of the feminine at the hands of the Three Bad Men.  

Imarja is the principle of feminine creation and sacrifice - she really works on a much more mystical level.

is that pronouced notch-it or is it pronounced no-chit?

Given that it was based on Greg saying "not yet", I pronounce it "notch-(y)et"

Pronunciations of it vary. Last I heard Greg say the name to me during a phone call it was more like "Nah-chet". In the end, say it how you like.

Okay, what about another less than accessible goddess: Arachne Solara.  Firewitch worships her, the Beast Valley folk worship her: what do they get from it?

In The Smoking Ruins & Other Stories, several of the beast men have Rune points associated with Arachne Solara. She appears to give Rune magic and a variety of spells.
