The FA Handbook lists all full and associate FA members and the entities behind them. Using your example, it shows that the entity operating as Arsenal in the EPL is "The Arsenal Football Club Public Limited Company", company number 109244. So, if you want to own Arsenal, you need to get control of that company; if Arsenal wanted to be a FA member via a different vehicle than that company, there'd presumably be a defined procedure to go through.
As I say, the Handbook might cover such a procedure, as well as the other affiliation procedures you're interested in. Here's the link: http://www.thefa.com/...-2019---revised.ashx
