I had provided this on Aug 9th, but when I scanned the Archive I
realized it had ended up in Statalist Limbo:

I'm wondering if escaping the interior ` (as a \`) would work:

-file write `handle' `"capture label variable `=VarName[`x']'
\`"`=VarLabel[`x']'"' "' _n-

I find the display command can often be used to preview the results of
file write so you can test:

-di `"capture label variable \`"zTree (or other) Session ID
(alpha-numeric)"' "'-

which produces:

capture label variable `"zTree (or other) Session ID (alpha-numeric)"'
, the desired output.
