```Dario,

Use ReplacePart

mat = Table[Table[0, {5}], {5}];
xy = {3, 3};
mat = ReplacePart[mat, 1, xy]

{{0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 1, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 0,
0, 0}}

xy2 = Table[{n, n}, {n, Length[mat]}];
mat = ReplacePart[mat, 1, xy2]

{{1, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 1, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 1, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 0, 1, 0}, {0, 0, 0,
0, 1}}

val = Range[Length[mat]];
valPos = Table[{n}, {n, Length[mat]}];
mat = ReplacePart[mat, val, xy2, valPos]

{{1, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 2, 0, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 3, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 0, 4, 0}, {0, 0, 0,
0, 5}}
