I have a XBee Pro S2. There are various read-only register commands, how would one write to these registers?

The Read-Only registers have their values hard-coded. You cannot write/edit such parameters.

From my understanding there are several registers that are read-only, yet change when joining a network. For example: the register(s) associated with CH, OP, OI, MY, MP.

Registers like those are where my question truly stems from.
These are the parameters which are decided by Coordinator module using algorithm or they provide some information about network.

CH for example tell about current channel being used in network. By configuring "SC" parameter you indirectly can control CH value.

OP will be equal to ID parameter (unless ID=0)

I can't think of any way by which rest of the mentioned parameters can be edited.
