In case of DNS you can form a new packet and replace the original one with it. It’s pretty easy to do because DNS works over UDP. However, the same trick with TCP packet is much more complex. Packets in TCP stream has sequence and aknowledgement numbers which are incremented to the amount of data payload in the packet. So if you change data length you must also track changes in SEQ and ACK fileds.
