Are you asking how to view and edit the executable file wscript.exe itself?   Or are you asking how to view and edit the text-based script files that are run under wscript.exe

After the install from the download link I gave above:

Start Notepad.
Write your script. For example purposes, type WScript.Echo("Hello World!");
Save this text file with a .js extension (instead of the default .txt extension). For example, Hello.js.
Navigate to the file you just saved, and double-click it.
Windows Script Host invokes the JScript engine and runs your script. In the example, a message box is displayed with the message "Hello World!"

This is from: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/script56/html/wsconcreatingscripts.asp

All the documentation you need is at Microsoft. It's pretty good stuff, too!
