Replacing existing xml file

I want to replace existing xml file, e.g. openerp/addons/sale/res_partner_view.xml.

Of course, I can directly modify the content inside it.

Besides, I can inherit it and add, replace and make invisible fields.

However, can I copy the whole xml file to other location and rename it for direct editing?

What are the detailed steps? 


What exactly you want to do need add new field in res_partner or remove existing field

Yes, but I do not want to change the existing file "res_partner_view.xml". Can I copy its content to a new xml file and use a command so that openerp runs the new file instead of the original "res_partner_view.xml" file?
