Could someone outline the process of creating a page with a customized list form? I followed this guide to override the list form template, but this also customizes the built-in form pages/dialogs. I want the admin pages/dialogs untouched, and use custom forms only an application page I create myself. The goal is to provide a fully branded form that matches the rest of the site. Also, since this is a solution that's going to be deployed I want programmatic solutions, i.e. I don't want to use SharePoint Designer.

you can replace edit and new forms for lists and libraries with developed by you using module and setting it as default new and edit forms. You can check this answer for more details. But I if you want develop new and edit forms with custom look easier, check SPForm tool, you can use editor, javascript and css styles to adjust completely new look for list and libraries forms.
