I know. Why do you open a new thread for every single message?

Why do you want to edit the backend? Do you mean the source code?

I have already mentioned quite some times that you can use the "-d"
option to specify the SANE device name.

I guess most devices will just try what's given in the command line
even if it's not in the config file. Some may need the entry in the
config file, however, e.g. to set up the options for this device.

If you can explain what you want to do in more detail, maybe there is
a solution.

Well, that's nice. Can you write more about this? Is it a frontend?
