1. Generally, a new/changed function isn't added to the entry point of a program.

2. You can more easily implement such changes through DLLs that implement the different functions.  Replacing the DLL would replace the function's actions.  The original function might be little more than a stub that does nothing but return.

Not without gaining psychic abilities.  How should I know what your "Custom Code to Do Something" actually does?!?

Creating a DLL with Delphi is as simeple as selecting DLL as the type of project you want to create.

Alternative to a direct DLL call is to create an ActiveX DLL and instantiate the object inside your application.  Its methods would accomplish the "Do Something".
