you are best advised not to change any of offical Stata's code, but to
copy that code and make changes in the copied version. You should also
document the changes in a .hlp file. Changing offical programs will
get you in trouble whenever these programs are updated and you are
likely to use track of what you did. Plus, it will become almost
impossible for others to understand your code, since you use offical
Stata's command names with syntax that differs for the documentation.

This said, there is no way you can change build-in commands, since
these are in comiled C code.
