Altering chlorophyll is very hard...

However, hemoglobin, a molecule in blood, is very similar to chlorophyll (the magnesium is substituted by iron). However, it has completely different characteristics from chlorophyll. Hemoglobin is used to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide. However, this already proves that changing one molecule in chlorophyll could change the whole function. However, you might be able to compare the two and look at the differences and similarities, thought it'd be hard to make an experiment out of it.
