Yes, you can edit the file, or alternatively you can use the --users
option to John.  For example:

john --users=joe,jill passwd

To interrupt/continue your 2-month cracking session with this change
made to it (attack only some of the hashes), you may either edit the
file with the hashes (easier) or edit the .rec file (harder: you need to
add a "--users=joe,jill" line and increase the options count number - I
do not recommend this approach as it is too easy for you to do it wrong).
