The methods we provide for interacting with change tracking are not meant to be used to programmatically change the document. They are meant to be used to provide a UI for XMAX or to create a custom UI in XMetaL Author (this is noted in the Programmer's Guide).

In both cases there is also no way to suppress the dialog that asks if you would like to continue searching from the beginning of the document (or end if going backwards).

With that in mind, I think you may need to read the whole document, or portions of it, into a string, manipulate the string and then restore it. Not sure what you are building but you might find it better to handle this type of work externally to XMetaL Author instead.
