The sentence makes sense grammatically to me, but 'modifications'? Is that another way of referring to the crossword puzzles and such? Or is he literally changing things somehow?

I was able to translate this easily, but I have no idea what it means

Nobody says newspaper in an english sentence like this. They would definitely say the paper.

Paper can also refer to an essay which might be too confusing in this context.
