there might be such a script available, but that would depend greatly
what you mean by "grafted".  it's not clear if you did that grafting
at the petrie-dish or the in-silico level. and if it is small change,
(oh, let's say less than 25 residues), it might be easier, and even
less error-prone to just perform that edit once in an editor.

if you didn't perform this graft at the petrie-dish level (followed by
a new structural data set), how do you know the new xyz coordinates?
