Thanks Maarten and Austin! Problem solved.

Maybe someone can help. I want to meddle with my standard
errors after regress to see how this affects the Wald test.
Since Stata does not let me simply change the system
variables _se[VAR] and then run the test and the Wald test
takes only
standard adjustments for the SEs as an argument I see no
option besides coding or doing it manually. Is there a nicer
the graphs below show the consequences of changes in the
standard error for the Wald statistic and resulting the
p-value, assuming that the null hypothesis is that the
coefficient equals 0.
