If a file has been modified using a hex editor, and this person changes all the values to F6, is it possible to restore the file to its original state?

Only if you can find an unedited copy in temp files or similar.

If you can prove they were changed to F6, you may be able to show intent to destroy evidence since this is the value used (if I remember correctly) on new disks. It should be a flag that something is being covered up.
