It's possible. A ROM I've tried called RootBox has options to change the default keyboard assignments. Such as forcing the enter button rather than the emotion button. It also has an option to enable the volume key to control the cursor left of right. If you still want to change the settings yourself ask or poke around here; http://forum.xda-developers.com
Another option is to use an APK/app to add or replace the keyboard your using now. I've used "Hacker's Keyboard" in the past and found it handy as well as stable. Here is a pic of the extra keys layout. (Wouldn't let me apply the image link?)
Are you missing the key layout you're used to from your computer? This keyboard has separate number keys, punctuation in the usual places, and arrow keys. It is based on the AOSP Gingerbread soft keyboard, so it supports multitouch for the modifier keys.
This keyboard is especially useful if you use ConnectBot for SSH access. It provides working Tab/Ctrl/Esc keys, and the arrow keys are essential for devices such as the Xoom tablet or Nexus S that don't have a trackball or D-Pad.
Hope this helps,

The "Hacker's Keyboard" app was great when I was testing a tablet and setting it up for a friend who buggered it up. The arrows are a life saver when using a root shell. The ROM I use now on my phone has an okay keyboard included so I haven't used "HK" in a while but just read the replies to see if they have any bugs in the latest release.
