If you simply want to replace elements in your list here 
are two ways:

In[7]:=
    mylist = { {1,2,3},{3,4,5},{5,6,7}}
Out[7]=
    {{1, 2, 3}, {3, 4, 5}, {5, 6, 7}}

In[8]:=
    ?ReplacePart

    ReplacePart[expr, new, n] yields an expression in which the
       nth part of expr is replaced by new. ReplacePart[expr,
       new, {i, j, ...}] replaces the part at position {i, j,
       ...}. ReplacePart[expr, new, {{i1, j1, ...}, {i2, j2,
       ...}, ...}] replaces parts at several positions by new.

In[9]:=
    mylist = ReplacePart[ mylist, a^2, {1,2}]
Out[9]=
          2
    {{1, a , 3}, {3, 4, 5}, {5, 6, 7}}

In[10]:=
    mylist
Out[10]=
          2
    {{1, a , 3}, {3, 4, 5}, {5, 6, 7}}

In[11]:=
    mylist[[2,2]] = c
Out[11]=
    c

In[12]:=
    mylist
Out[12]=
          2
    {{1, a , 3}, {3, c, 5}, {5, 6, 7}}

You can also add and remove elements. For further details see
section 1.8.6 of the Mathematica book, "Adding, Removing and 
Modifying List Elements.

If you require further help with this I would suggest that you 
contact Wolfram Research Technical Support (support at wolfram.com) 
directly including specific details of what you are trying to do.

I hope this helps.
