Sure it will. Just rename /bin/gzip to /bin/gzip.real, and create a
shell script /bin/gzip that looks like this:

exec gzip.real -9 "$@"

You're the sysadmin, so you can do this. (And if you were not the
sysadmin, you
wouldn't be able to edit any global configuration file either.)

Of course I can. Until my distributions package manager replaces that file again with the next regular update. You should know it is almost always a bad idea to edit any files in /bin /sbin and /usr/*. The only solution to this might be to place a script like this in /usr/local/bin, that will only work if the script thats calling it is using the right $PATH and does not refer directly to /bin/gzip.
