Redirecting link

Last Modified: 2014-01-14

how can I change/redirect link when I don't have access to the source.

Let's say I am using online service, where there are objects (image) like this: http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=mm&chs=22x28&chco=be835e,be835e,000000&ext=.png

I want that it would load from http://myexamplewebsite.com/image.png instead of that image from apis.google.com.

If i would have access to the source i simply could change code, but right now I don't have access to it.

What i tried:
change'ing hosts file (that instead of one link it would load another).
was searching for firefox plugins.

But I didn't found any tool, nor have an idea how to make it.

Sorry for my broken english, hope you understood my question.

Fast example:
you visit google.com, and instead of Google logo (https://www.google.com/images/srpr/logo11w.png), it would load Yahoo logo (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/94/Yahoo-logo.jpg)

I even not sure, which categories I should choose for that question.

Thank you
