I'm assuming that the changes want to be isolated, as in, just for a
certain case, not every time you read any object.

If so, in the function that you are calling read_object from, place a
few lines *after* that call, to make the changes.

You should have something like

void my_function(whatever parameters)
  struct obj_data *obj;

  /* some stuff, including getting a virtual or real number, I'll
assume a real number */

  obj=read_object(number, REAL);

  /* You can stick the object tweaking stuff here */
  /* For example, to set value0 to 3 */


I hope this is what you were after.
