Possibly not: the modifications to biblatex styles may be as simple as
changing the character that separates volume and issue from a colon to a
space, and there's a command for that. Sure, if you need radical
changes, it might need some LaTeX programming, but if you have some
formatted examples of how anszj looks, it's simple to make a 10-line
document to produce them in one biblatex style, change the style,
produce them in another, and repeat until you find something very close,
and then modify that one. biblatex uses your existing .bib files for data.

That's always the problem.

You found a solution, although normally it's just
\renewcommand{\refname}{References for the discussion}
and then put the formatting

This is normal. Reference sections are usually EITHER at chapter level
(the default) OR at section or subsection level (see bibunits
documentation, p.4), so the font is bold because chapter and
[sub]section headings are bold *by default*, so the references headings
are set to match them. bibunits uses LaTeX's standard 'thebibliography'
environment for making the headings, so that's what you get by default.

What you appear to be needing is something very different: a heading
with the default chapter style and spacing, but with the text in plain
italics, so it's a manual change (it would be possible to do it using
the internal code, but hardly worth it unless you wanted to change the
spacing above and below as well).
