For food and medical applications, pay the extra for food and medical grade supplies. You wouldn't cook a meal in motor oil, would you?

Yes, that is a joke ---->
Something like this
If you do this, you can use a more giant CO2 tank, like a 5 or 20 pounder. Getting that filled with food grade co2 should still be cheaper.

Ohhh! That's an excellent suggestion, I will need to figure out the threads. Also now I am concerned with the difference between industrial vs food grade CO2..and if it is worth the hassle to find food grade CO2 or just keep paying $22.

It doesn't seem to be too bad. Many people who run beer kegs use CO2 from welding supply places. If you do want to go with food grade. I would try a dry ice place. It shouldn't be too hard to find. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere.
Are you in the L.A. area? There is this place in Hawthorne that does 5lb CO2 tank exchanges for $24.
Also, I'm pretty sure they are threaded the same as paintball tanks, (5/8-18UNF-2B is what catalina tanks are threaded). You can swap valves from a co2 tank to confirm.

Perhaps I am approaching this problem the wrong way... maybe I should replace the female end in the soda stream machine with one that uses paintball threads for a paintball bottle to screw into, instead of trying to modify the bottle itself?

You are way over thinking this. Gut the soda stream brass pin valve, drill and tap the *** end 1/8" NPT, attach remote line, profit.

Palmers has an adapter for that now.
Fill your Soda Stream tank,
Convert over to a paintball tank,
Use the larger tanks with the CGA 320 threads.
The bulk adapter can be sold without the hose and fittings if you don't need them.

The difference between food grade and industrial grade CO2 is the storage unit. Most food grade CO2 is stored in glass lined tanks. Keep in mind that industrial CO2 is used for welding and must be pure or it will contaminte the weld.
Crossman 12 grams are dirty becuase they never wash the inside of the tank. A residue of water soluable oil is left behind.
