I do not want to go into the details of your concrete problem --
just give some general remarks about "pickle".

"pickle" is used for serialization/deserialization of (most) Python objects:
i.e. it can transform a Python object into a string (called a "pickle")
and (later) reconstruct the object from the pickle.

You should not be interested in the internal pickle structure --
keep at the Python level.


For your concrete problem: unpickle your pickle file to get
a Python object; construct a similar Python object with the new data;
pickle that Python object.
