I've been doing some maps of my own in Half-life; Deus Ex; and of course UT. The thing is I'm also "playing around with their window interface. I would change the look at start up; I would change the names of the menus...edit scripts/codes; I practically customize the look of the game in my own image and likeness...
Am I in big trouble?

Am I violating anything by doing this? I'm also planning of releasing these MODS commercially. What would be the implications of my actions?

If I will need to license it, how much would it cost me? What would be the terms and conditions?

Hope you could help me with my questions.

Thanks in advance
:D

You could check the Epicgames homepage.
I'm no legal expert but I think it could get you in trouble.
You can always email them and ask

A lisence probably costs a few 10.000 $

well, you have 2 options in cases like this, either get a license, or go to a company witch has a licence, but they are very strickt, and few mods can archive this
so in your case i would go for the free release
