First, most likely what you read refers to the fact that Android is open
source, and so you can build your own firmware and deploy it on your own
devices with whatever changes/replacements you want.

Even beyond that, SDK applications have a fair bit of control to provide
alternatives for built-in capabilities, though there it is providing
*alternatives*, not usually outright replacements, and also only where
there are appropriate hooks.

What you're trying to do is say that, from an end-user application, you
want to replace the right-mouse menu when you click on the desktop
background of Windows or Linux. Or you're trying to replace the
font-picker drop-down list in Microsoft Word or
Fine-grained features like that are not necessarily designed to be
replaced in isolation without replacing more of the product. You see this
with all sorts of applications and platforms.

If you are willing to modify the firmware and distribute those
modifications, you can change whatever you want. By my reading of the
Android source code, you cannot change what happens on a long-press from
an SDK application. Since you are on [android-beginners], my assumption is
that you are trying to build an SDK application.

You are certainly welcome to your opinion, just as I am welcome to my
opinion that your expectations are unrealistic, even for the most open
source of projects.
