In my opinion yes,  but note I only represent my own opinion here. On a
practical side, make sure that your users know they are downloading a
custom patched version not supported by the fpc team.

Must I add the source of the change done?

As a minimum clearly display a download link to the modified source in the
download. Could be a separate text file in the download, perhaps listing
the modifications and link to the source.

I What I am not allowed to do?

Anything not permitted by fpc's licences :)
