You need a read/write CD (CD-RW) and a read/write CD drive.

You could always open it, make your changes and do a "save as" then bin the old one.

I've got CD-RW drive , do I need a special CD?

Yes, you need CD-RW discs as well, CD-Rs (which it sounds as if you are using) are readable only.

Yes, the CDs are either read-only or are read-write (sometimes called rewritable).

Yes, you can get them at PC World, Staples, Currys, Asda, WHSmith etc. etc. Anywhere that sells computer supplies.

Aldi/Lidl sometimes have them - it's worth keeping an eye on their specials and stocking up.
