I fear it's not possible to do what you'd like by the way you mention.
AFAIK and according to
http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/docs/reference/mapfile/join fields joined
through a JOIN directive can not be used to affect the look of a map. In
fact, there's no working way to reference fields from a JOIN anywhere
inside the mapfile. They can be referenced inside templates for HTML
You could however draw them dynamically from inside PHP.
