I have the following

void replace_callID ( char* msg,  char* newVal)
{

      // The msg is like this
      REGISTER sip:xxxxxxxxxx SIP/2.0\r\n
      Via: SIP/2.0/TCP [22222222222222222222222]:5060;branch=z9hG4bKdebc3b0671f2;rport\r\n
      Max-Forwards: 70\r\n
      Contact: <sip:3333333333333333@[2222222222222222222222222]:5060>\r\n
      To: <sip:555555555555555@rallye>\r\n
      From: <sip:222222222222222>;tag=493d93b081015e61-95993bb7.0\r\n
      Call-ID: 111119e0a61-114650f8-c7c298767685\r\n
      CSeq: 1 REGISTER\r\n
      Expires: 600000\r\n
      Allow: INVITE, ACK, CANCEL, OPTIONS, BYE, REFER, NOTIFY, MESSAGE, SUBSCRIBE, INFO\r\n

      

}

// I want to replace the Call-ID value with new value e.g.


msg before calling replace_callID :

      REGISTER sip:xxxxxxxxxx SIP/2.0\r\n
      Via: SIP/2.0/TCP [22222222222222222222222]:5060;branch=z9hG4bKdebc3b0671f2;rport\r\n
      Max-Forwards: 70\r\n
      Contact: <sip:3333333333333333@[2222222222222222222222222]:5060>\r\n
      To: <sip:555555555555555@rallye>\r\n
      From: <sip:222222222222222>;tag=493d93b081015e61-95993bb7.0\r\n
      Call-ID: 111119e0a61-114650f8-c7c298767685\r\n
      CSeq: 1 REGISTER\r\n
      Expires: 600000\r\n
      Allow: INVITE, ACK, CANCEL, OPTIONS, BYE, REFER, NOTIFY, MESSAGE, SUBSCRIBE, INFO\r\n
      
replace_callID ( msg, "0202020202020202020202020202")

Then msg becomes

      REGISTER sip:xxxxxxxxxx SIP/2.0\r\n
      Via: SIP/2.0/TCP [22222222222222222222222]:5060;branch=z9hG4bKdebc3b0671f2;rport\r\n
      Max-Forwards: 70\r\n
      Contact: <sip:3333333333333333@[2222222222222222222222222]:5060>\r\n
      To: <sip:555555555555555@rallye>\r\n
      From: <sip:222222222222222>;tag=493d93b081015e61-95993bb7.0\r\n
      Call-ID: 0202020202020202020202020202\r\n
      CSeq: 1 REGISTER\r\n
      Expires: 600000\r\n
      Allow: INVITE, ACK, CANCEL, OPTIONS, BYE, REFER, NOTIFY, MESSAGE, SUBSCRIBE, INFO\r\n

Call_ID can be CALL_ID or call_id etc ..

This function will do. I have added comments in the code. Try it, as I have not tested it myself.
void replace_callID ( char* msg,  char* newVal)
{
    // assuming that the msg will allow to hold the bigger buffer if the newVal is greater than the existing Call-ID value
    const char* callIdToken = "CALL-ID: ";
    char *upper = strdup(msg);
    char *callId = strstr(upper, callIdToken);
    // find the CALL-ID (using the UPPER CASE message to find a case insensitive string)
    if(callId)
    {
        
        char *callIdEol = strstr(callId, "\r\n");
        if(callIdEol)
        {
            // store the remaining part of the message in a variable
            char *theRest = strdup(msg + (callIdEol - upper));
            // terminate the msg string straight after the Call-ID
            msg[(callId - upper) + strlen(callIdToken)] = 0;
            // append new value
            strcat(msg, newVal);
            //append the remaining message
            strcat(msg, theRest);
            // free memory
            free(theRest);
        }
    }
    // free memory
    free(upper);
}

Sorry, forgot to capitalise the string. Use strupr():
void replace_callID ( char* msg,  char* newVal)
{
    // assuming that the msg will allow to hold the bigger buffer if the newVal is greater than the existing Call-ID value
    const char* callIdToken = "CALL-ID: ";
    char *upper = strdup(msg);
    strupr(upper);
    char *callId = strstr(upper, callIdToken);
    // find the CALL-ID (using the UPPER CASE message to find a case insensitive string)
    if(callId)
    {
        
        char *callIdEol = strstr(callId, "\r\n");
        if(callIdEol)
        {
            // store the remaining part of the message in a variable
            char *theRest = strdup(msg + (callIdEol - upper));
            // terminate the msg string straight after the Call-ID
            msg[(callId - upper) + strlen(callIdToken)] = 0;
            // append new value
            strcat(msg, newVal);
            //append the remaining message
            strcat(msg, theRest);
            // free memory
            free(theRest);
        }
    }
    // free memory
    free(upper);
}

If your compiler does not have strupr() implement it yourself like this:
void strupr(char *string)
{
   while(*string)
   {
       if ( *string >= 'a' && *string <= 'z' )
       {
          *string = *string - 32;
       }
       string++;
   }
}

BTW, this is the tested program

BTW, in C++ this code will look like this:
void replace_callID ( char* msg, char* newVal)
{
    const string callIdToken = "CALL-ID: ";
    string s(msg);
    string u(s);
    transform(u.begin(), u.end(), u.begin(), ::toupper);
    size_t pos, pos1;
    if((pos = u.find(callIdToken)) != string::npos &&
       (pos1 = u.find("\r\n", pos)) != string::npos)
    {
        s.replace(pos + callIdToken.length(), pos1 - pos - callIdToken.length(), newVal);
        strcpy(msg, s.c_str());
    }
}
