For a linear IRF, or impulse response function (which will be forthcoming from a linear VAR) the effect of (k x \sigma) is k times the effect of 1 \sigma, where k is any real number (including -1). Thus one can calculate the effect of any scaling of the standard +1 \sigma shock from the reported IRF.
And how can I implement that in stata?

-help irf- would be a good start.
