Is there a way to change the sods in a weapon such as the holding beam to a sprite like a phaser beam?
I stole fire from the lighter!

nope, tis hardcoded, you could do an invisible phaser and a borg assimilation beam that removes no crew, have them timed the same.
I'm not crazy... Not always

Alternately you can download any number of the cutting beam mods that have been made, though they will use a different texture.
If your really good at graphics editing and animation sprites, you could try taking renderings of weapon sods and then make a sprite based weapon effect but that would be very fiddly.
