Yes, you can change just about any of the game's starting conditions, mostly through the descr_strat file in data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign. The town names are not listed, so you'll have to figure out which region a given city or town is in, but it's pretty simple from there.

For example, Arretium, the Julii capital, shows up in the descr_strat file like this:

settlement
{
level large_town
region Etruria

year_founded 0
population 4000
plan_set default_set
faction_creator romans_julii
building
{
type barracks militia_barracks
}
building
{
type core_building governors_villa
}
building
{
type port_buildings port
}
building
{
type defenses wooden_pallisade
}
building
{
type hinterland_farms farms
}
building
{
type hinterland_roads roads
}
}

Simply change the boldface line to add population. Note: I'm not sure if pushing a population above that needed for the next level of town will break anything, but it might. And as always, make sure to a copy of the file first.
