Check this link, its the same question.
You can do it, the best way is to use a standard format like JSON.

The linked question only indicates how to work with files that are GENERATED by the application. Not ones that ship with the application.

This is very much not the same question. The question was whether you can write into a TEXT file, not a json. I, for one, need to paste a string into a text file using godot, and I need it to be in the .txt format, which the question you've linked doesn't mention.
