Modifying default behaviour El Capitan through .plist files

There are a number of features I would love to be able to customise for various apps in El Capitan. As a concrete example, I would like to change the default font used for the Notes app. Once SIP is disabled, I'm able to edit the plist file that contains info about the default fonts in Notes (/Applications/Notes.app/Contents/Resources/en.lproj/DefaultFonts.plist). There are 3 items in the file, all of which I've modified.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <array>     <dict>         <key>FontName</key>         <string>Menlo</string>         <key>Size</key>         <integer>12</integer>     </dict>     <dict>         <key>FontName</key>         <string>Menlo</string>         <key>Size</key>         <integer>12</integer>     </dict>     <dict>         <key>FontName</key>         <string>Menlo</string>         <key>Size</key>         <integer>12</integer>     </dict> </array> </plist> 

I've tried rebooting, defaults delete com.apple.notes, and defaults delete com.apple.Notes. None of these have any effect.

In general, is there a way to modify app behaviour on El Capitan by modifying the configuration plist files?
