First, you must have saved a copy of the original file before you changed it; cp file file.orig Then you edit the file. Next you crate the patch; diff -u file.orig file >youredits.diff Then you start the send-pr script, and import the contents of the diff file in the 'Fix' section. See the send-pr manual. Be sure to use the 'ports' category, and add the word '[PATCH]' to the begin of the desription line. Check if your e-mail address if correct, otherwise you won't receive replies and follow-ups.
