Well, you _could_ modify them, yes, but it's almost certainly better to
do it locally. that file is my ~/.Xresources file, it should be read on
startup/login by X. If you make changes to it during an X session, 'xrdb
-merge ~/.Xresources' will make them current, so the next xterm for
example that you open will have the new settings.
