    Don't see those very often... that is an ingenious arrangement which allows one to run hot water radiators with only one end coupled.

    I don't see any good reason why you couldn't cut a thermostatic valve into one of the pipes. What you can't do is replace the existing valve and connections.

    There is a Danfoss valve with a a lance and I think another one from another manufacture that could replace that vale. The thing is the Honewell Unique valve is also a bypass so if you stop flow to that valve, anything else in series will also not heat. If it is separately connected to the mains then you can install a TRV before the unique valve(or in place of), otherwise you need a bypass.
