Most of the built-in macros are bundled into "system" add-ons.  You'd need to get the source code of those, make your changes and recompile them, then deploy them to your server, replacing the system add-on.

thanks Nic. For example, suppose I need the source code of "contentbylabel" macro.

As you told I found the addon "Advanced Macros" and inside the module "contentbylabel" but I can't find the source code.

Do you have more details, please?
