Yes and no.

Yes, because you can dump the bytecode to a string and manipulate it
with string.unpack and string.pack. Luiz's lbci library
makes the task easier.

No, because the information about bytecode structure is not officially
documented outside the Lua source. Luiz's library is authoritative, of
course, but not official.
