If I understand you correctly, then you need to edit the library footprint, not the on-board footprint. There's a button in the footprint properties edit dialog window:

selcuk:
On PCB editor, you need to select the component with a mouse click, press "e" (or right click -> properties), then on the "footprint properties" dialog, click "edit library footprint" button.

What is you KiCad version?

Kicad libraries are read only

You need to save a modified footprint to a Personal Global Footprint Library; then use this modified footprint from your personal library for your layout.
