```data = {{x1, y1, z1, f1, g1, h1}, {x2, y2, z2, f2, g2, h2},
{x3, y3, z3, f3, g3, h3}, {xn, yn, zn, fn, gn, hn}};

numberOfDimensions = Length[data[[1]]];

s = ReplacePart[Table[0, {numberOfDimensions}],
2 -> 10];

s + # & /@ data

{{x1, y1 + 10, z1, f1, g1, h1},
{x2, y2 + 10, z2, f2, g2, h2},
{x3, y3 + 10, z3, f3, g3, h3},
{xn, yn + 10, zn, fn, gn, hn}}
