First, make a backup of the original file.
Then just edit the original (add/remove lines).

This is not where it is installed. That is where the CPAN program
uncompressed it to before installing. It is more likely in a directory
like this:
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/Bio/Tools/GFF.pm
But it depends on how your Perl setup arranges things!

No.
