Yes, you can write a table file for (almost) any existing game (and not going to mention which are the expectional cases but yeah).

Table file is just a normal txt-file (made with Notepad for instance) that contains letters and their hexadecimal numbers (which differ in almost every game - those depend on how the game is programmed to load the graphics of font).

Part of table file for GSC



So, ABC is written as 80 81 82 in the ROM and abc as A0 A1 A2.
And by loading the table file with a hex editor, you can easily search for text and edit it.

There is a table file for FireRed here:,13825.0.html
