Hi Jessica.

You need to use Bio::SeqIO to read in the GenBank file to a BioPerl 
sequence object, and to write your new GenBank file:
http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/HOWTO:SeqIO

To add a new feature follow the instructions here:
http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/HOWTO:Feature-Annotation#Building_Your_Own_Sequences

(except that you are adding the feature to the sequence object you got 
from the Genbank file, not a new Bio::Seq object).

Cheers.
Roy.
