You have to ask your web host to do this.

If this routine uses the /tmp directory is because the data can be deleted every so often. Now if I create a new directory, is the data written there going to be permanent and keep growing in size?
You can create the new directory anywhere. Usually, /tmp directories have only a small amount of allocated space whereas the directories within your public space have much more space. The data in the cache is never permanent and the cache files are always entirely deleted upon a store update.

No, not the same folder as your /tmp directory. I would create a new folder in your /wp-content/uploads folder. That makes more sense.
