You can either type plotHmmStates at an R prompt, and copy paste the 
function into an editor to change it, or you can download the source 
file which will contain the function in the R directory.

In the first case you can simply rename the function (my.plotHmmStates 
or whatever), save as my.plotHmmStates.R and source() back into your R 
session. In the second case you can actually add your function and build 
the package if you have all the necessary tools (or you can source() the 
function as in the first case).
