Question: Is there a way to fetch values from system variables such as $PATH, $PWD, $SHELL within Squeak?

If you are using Unix/Linux or Windows, you can load OSProcess from SqueakMap.
Then you can evaluate:
    OSProcess thisOSProcess environmentAt: #PATH ==> the current $PATH
    OSProcess thisOSProcess environment ==> a Dictionary of the environment variables
