In the Hexl buffer, type "C-h m".  Emacs will pop up a window that
describes the various features of the Hexl mode, including several
methods of modifying bytes and nibbles of the original file.  "C-M-x"
seems to be the command that you are looking for, but perhaps
something else is more convenient, so I suggest to read the whole text
displayed by "C-h m".
