Sure.  If you know where the code is, you can edit it.  I strongly suggest moving to a child theme footing if you haven't yet done so and avoid hacking the core.

Further to what Jason advises...

WordPress has Themes.  You install one, and you've got it.  But WordPress also has updates to its software, and to its Themes.  If you modify a Theme and it gets updated, you lose your modifications.  These updates are automatic and necessary.  Hence the idea of Child Themes.  They are like object-oriented inheritance, in that they extend the original theme with your own custom modifications.  Make a Google search for WordPress Child Themes and learn more before you invest your time, talent and treasure in something that could get blown away without notice!

I also may have spoken too soon.  You might be able to get a report of which functions/hooks/filters are firing on a specific page by using Debug Objects:

http://wordpress.org/plugins/debug-objects/

Not sure it will be helpful, if it returns a list of EVERYTHING that fires each time a page loads but it might be better than nothing.
