You can't change the code that the keyboard sends (for most keyboards). You can, on the other hand, intercept the keypress and translate it into something else.

So the logic of it is:
Create a keypress handler.
Attach handler to keypress event

If you wanted more help, I'd ask in the C and C++ forum, as this is the C# forum.
