Don't edit in Word.

But if you must, it is not difficult to remove the axis labels and titles.
For example:

   sysuse auto,clear
   scatter mpg price, xlabel("") ylabel("") xtitle("") ytitle("") /// 
      plotregion(style(none)) graphregion(fcolor(white))

Or change the line pattern:
  
   gen t = _n
   twoway  line head t , lc(black) lp(dot)  || line gear t,  /// 
      lc(blue) lp(dash)

Or add arrows to label point or lines:

   tempvar y1 x1 y2 x2 name pos
   input `y1' `x1' `y2' `x2' str10 `name' `pos'
    5 55 5 47 "Headroom"  3
    4.1 77.5 3.7 73.5 "Gear Ratio" 12
   end

   twoway  line head t , lc(black) lp(dot) || line gear t, lc(blue) ///
    lp(dash) ///
   || pcarrow `y1' `x1' `y2' `x2' in 1, mlabel(`name') mlabvpos(`pos') ///
    mlabcolor(black)  mcolor(black) lc(black) /// 
   || pcarrow `y1' `x1' `y2' `x2' in 2, mlabel(`name') mlabvpos(`pos') ///
    mlabcolor(blue)  mcolor(blue) lc(blue)  legend(off)
