The rules are in the file "civ3mod.bic" for vanilla civ3 or "civ3x.bix" for PTW. In either case it is in the main directory where the game executable is and can be edited by using the editor for that version which is in the same folder. Simply double-clicking the rules file should launch the appropriate editor. You are *strongly* encouraged to backup this file to a safe place before you mess with it, however.
Editing stats of units is simple but if you are actually going to add new units, you should take a look at Kryten's tutorial (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=31576) and/or the offsite one listed in my sig as it involves more than just what's in the editor.
Also, please note that there's a Creation & Customization Forum (http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=46) here where things such as rule changes and alternative units are discussed.

This is better asked in the Creation & Customization Forum. Moved.
