This is the sort of thing that the dehacked program is for. (Or whacked on more modern windows computers.) These programs are a GUI for creating a dehacked patch. A dehacked patch is a text lump that can change various bits of game content, including the same text you mentioned. You can open the freedoom wad in Slade to see an example; freedom replaces most (all?) of the in game text with a dehacked lump.

If you are aiming for a port that supports DECORATE, you can do something like this in the DECORATE lump:

Actor HealthBonus2 : HealthBonus replaces HealthBonus
  PickUpMessage "A health bonus! Nice!"

If you are inheriting from an actor (which is what the : HealthBonus is doing in the code above), you only need to include what you are changing.\


Repeat for each item whose pick-up message you want to change. This page should help you find the actor names of everything in Doom and Doom2:
