    I may not be entirely right. But considering there isn't a program that can do this for you, you'd have to find the HEX/ASM routines (whichever it be) that contain the information for this, and then you'd probably just have to change the item offsets for them to which ones you want. But unless the pick up ability is a major factor in your hack, I wouldn't really worry to much about it as it's not something people look into when playing a rom hack.
