How to change the  language of the groups.io messages (welcoming messages) for a french group ?
There has been discussion about localization on the beta group and it will happen someday.  Unfortunately, that "someday" may end up being measured in years.  Others may be able to give you some tips on things they've done to minimize the difficulties for now.

Just to add that internationalization and localization is hard. It seems simple on the surface, but the whole thing is fraught with edge cases and many tiny complications. As an example, consider languages which are written vertically instead of horizontally. Also, for the "Hello [Name]," consider languages and cultures which do not use the "first name, last name convention" either by reversing that order or by having more or fewer names.
