The openvpn profile files are just txt files. You should be able to use the Pages app to make the edits. Just be sure to Export the modified file in RTF format.

My bad...the pages app just grayed out the .ovpn file. Couldn't be opened.

To use this app, you must have an OpenVPN profile and a server to connect to. OpenVPN profiles are files that have an extension of .ovpn

There are several methods available to import a profile:

If you have a .ovpn profile, copy the profile and any files it references to the SD card folder on your device (copy all files to the same folder). Then go to Menu / Import / Import Profile from SD card.
If you have an account on an OpenVPN Access Server, you can import the profile directly from the Access Server by going to Menu / Import / Import Access Server Profile.
If you have an account on the Private Tunnel service, go to Menu / Import / Import Private Tunnel Profile.
