Can this even be done and if so how?
See the manpage, and the UNAME_* variables.

One other thing: Will that change the way the system reacts in any way?
Apps should run normally (well, a browser may give a wrong plattform
information but that should be it). But what happens if you try to compile
something? Will a wrong plattform or CPU variable screw up what the
compiler spits out? Could be rather unhealthy if the compiler optimizes
code for a sun4u on an i386. :-)

It will confuse some things, yes. e.g. buildworld and ports, and maybe some things at runtime.
