Okay - I'll relook over the email explanation I sent to Xignal a while back to teach him to hack items and brush it up. As I warned you - it will be a bit confusing until the "light dawns" and then it is all too simple!

I never tried to alter monsters' stats and the like. Some of you might be able to figure that out.

While you're waiting - go out and get yourselves a nice hex editor. I use HexEdit. Open up one of your save files with it and note how the display has 2 columns - left side is in hexcode and the right almost appears to be english at times (sometimes it is!). Using the scroll bar, scroll yourselves right down to the bottom of the file and click somewhere in the text. Scroll up and look around a bit - you'll find your character names in this area and inventory items - KEWL!
Now close up that save file without doing anything!

NEVER EVER EDIT A FILE WITHOUT FIRST MAKING A BACKUP!!!!! EVER!!!!!

(and I mean that!)
