OK

So ill explain ya the basic things in xdb modding:

In your HOMM 5 folder is a folder called "data". Look into it and you will find a data.pak file. Open it with winrar

32 Bit Winrar

If you want to edit ALL files just do the quick way:
Extract all files to your current location. After that select all, right click on them, use properties and remove the "readable only" hook. Then your able to edit all files.

To edit abilities go to:
dataGameMechanicsCreatureCreaturesfactioncreature.xdb

lets look into a creature: example pit spawn. To give an existing creature abilities add them between (they are just an example):
<Abilities>
<Item>ABILITY_DEMONIC</Item>
<Item>ABILITY_VORPAL_SWORD</Item>
<Item>ABILITY_AXE_OF_SLAUGHTER</Item>
<Item>ABILITY_LAY_HANDS</Item>
<Item>ABILITY_ENERGY_CHANNEL</Item>
<Item>ABILITY_MAGIC_PROOF_75</Item>
<Item>ABILITY_IMMUNITY_TO_FIRE</Item>
<Item>ABILITY_FIRE_SHIELD</Item>
</Abilities>

To give new spells add between <KnownSpells> and </KnownSpells> some code in propper form:

<Item>
<Spell>SPELL_DEEP_FREEZE</Spell>
<Mastery>MASTERY_EXPERT</Mastery>
</Item>

abilities etc. you will find here:

Modding wiki

feel free to pm me (btw dredknight i didnt look on my messenger xD will do that every day from now on! - im sry about that)
