So, I believe I am supposed to add " iptables " to one of the lists in one of the thousands of files in the various meta- directories.  Is that right? The things is, I don't know which file I am supposed to edit.  Would I add it to task-base.bb in the openembedded-core folder?

Actually "bitbake iptables" just builds the user space iptables
utilities and associated libraries.

You would still need to have a kernel build that includes the required
modules (list below from the iptables recipe):

RRECOMMENDS_${PN} = "kernel-module-x-tables \
                     kernel-module-ip-tables \
                     kernel-module-iptable-filter \
                     kernel-module-iptable-nat \
                     kernel-module-nf-defrag-ipv4 \
                     kernel-module-nf-conntrack \
                     kernel-module-nf-conntrack-ipv4 \
                     kernel-module-nf-nat \
                     kernel-module-ipt-masquerade"
