I think hacking is illegal...
You and Adrian are correct: "hacking" in the sense of modifying the behaviour of a program, is not necessarily illegal, though it may violate license agreements, as NM noted below. That leaves the hacker (or his parents) open to civil liability. Having said that, I don't think the folks here at I'bles (i.e., us :-) take EULA's particularly seriously. If you can't open it, you don't own it.
actually when i start up halo, it advertises on the multiplayer screen to try Halo CE ,i think, which is an unsupported version where you can edit it more easily. Now this is another program but I believe it still runs off of Halo which would then modify the behavior of the program. But, i could be wrong...
I think what DJR wants is actually called a "cheat code" - things you can do to the programme whist running to make odd things happen.

Things I have seen are along the lines of "when you are on the start screen, press the left button seven times whilst holding down the circle button and you will get unlimited ammunition when using shotguns" - there are whole magazines and websites of that sort of thing.

Well, all I want to do is replace banashees with tanks........
The EULA says what it says. If you accept that concept, then by playing Halo, you have agreed to abide by its terms, period. You can't modify the program or do anything else.

If you have the Maker Attitude, then your copy of the program is yours, and you can do what you want with it. If you want hack it to replace banshees with happy hopping bunny rabbits, you can. You can't take your modified version and sell it or give it away (that's an obvious patent/copyright violation), but you can modify it for your personal use.

no, Halo trial is a free program, so i can hack it
. If you will read the EULA, you will find that reverse engineering is not allowed. Kinda difficult to hack a program without doing some RE.

Reverse engineering? You mean, everything in the program is backwards?
