Targeted a subdomain registered at another hosting company, to my web5xx.webfaction.com account. When I am logged into my.webfaction the browser can request and get the subdomain without problems. When not, I get a "502 – Bad Gateway" error page.

You would not want to create a cname as that is merely an alias. DNS A record requests would then query the returned value for the cname.
In this case web5xx.webfaction.com would be returned and not pointed to your account. What you would need to do is create an A record at your DNS provider to point to the IP address of your webfaction server.
