Please do not use environment files for that. Simply add or remove
unit drop-in files. i.e. if you want to make minor changes to a unit
file foobar.service then add
/etc/systemd/system/foobar.service.d/50-quux.conf or so, and add the
necessary settings there. "systemctl edit" helps you in doing so, and
make this easy.

Please read the documentation about EnvironmentFile=, its environment
variables configured what is passed to the executed processes, and may
be referenced in the ExecXYZ= line, but not in any other configuration
lines. THis is because the precise environment is determined at the
moment of activation, and settings generally have a broader definition
than that.
