Sure this can be done, but I'm still not convinced that it's a good idea.  The trick is to define a string that serves as a marker.  Fill a string with ZZZ123ZZZ123 or some similar byte pattern.  Then scan the file looking for that sequence and replace it.  You will have to be carefull with the string length depending on if you use a string or a PChar.  When the program is run, it will see the new data as the string.

Write them to the registry (Win95) or a text file (any platform) and encypt them.  What are you trying to do?  Copy protection?  Registration codes?
