Possible to remove a login on a Application?

If a person makes a program that has a login on it that connects to a server, can you reverse engineer the .exe file and change the code to show a form that would otherwise be hidden or is it easier to try to re-route the server it connects to back to localhost?

What do you imagine would be "hidden?"

You could intercept the traffic yourself, which might be easier if you know nothing about reversing apps.

Assuming you know the type of response that would be returned on a successful login and you knew the domain that it was querying you could (and this is a guess) possibly create something in your host file for the domain to point to a server of your choosing. You could then write a script or program that is hosted at that address listening for the message to return whatever the successful message should be.

Windows host file is found at C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc in the hosts file.
