Because of the change in core files it cannot be done as an extension - the only way is to edit core files.

You could overwrite the template variable U_FAQ to your own page in an extension. (the usual page would still exist but not be linked anymore).

You think?

Just did a quick peek, the help manager has quite some events to hook into. And AFAIK it should be possible to override existing language entries, so that should be everything that's needed?

The difficult thing is to add entries in the blocks.
