I want to limit the number of items users initially see and allow them to expand the quicklaunch links where they want to.

The Quick launch items are a List in HTML within a Div with class 'menu vertical menu-vertical'.

Someone has created some example Javascript to collapse such lists with a More link;

If you're prepared to dabble with the script you can get what you want.

Out of the box, not so much.

It is helpful to know that there is nothing out of the box.  I am prepared to edit the HTML but am an amateur so need a little more guidance than is provided there.  Is it possible to get that, in terms of exactly what to put where?

Depends on scope really. If this was a single page you could add the javascript to a content editor web part.

For wider usage, put the javascript in its own file and reference the file from the masterpage used in the site. SharePoint Designer could be used to add the script reference.

The answers here make a series of good points;
