Is it possible to edit the maps of half life 1 to include more enemies? I was thinking of doing that, since i wished there were more enemies in some parts

Yes, it's possible to change entities in existing maps. One tool that you can use is BSPEdit, which lets you edit the 'raw' entity data in a bsp file. Editing that data by hand can be error-prone, so you may find it easier to copy-paste it into an empty .map file and then modify the entities with Hammer or JACK, then copy-paste them from the modified .map file back into the bsp file (.map and .bsp files use the same format for entity data). Oh, and it's also a good idea to make a backup before you're going to modify a bsp file.

Editing existing map is a good way to learn.

For example, I adapted a map from the official Half-Life 2 single player campaign into a deathmatch map in *dm_tidal*
