I have an open source jar file (it contains all the .java files as well as class files) which I am trying to edit. However, I can't figure out anyway to do it. Unfortunately, I don't understand anything about Ant scripts or building, so I use an IDE which hopefully hides away the confusing details.

You can think of a jar file like a zip file.

You simply need to extract the java files, make your modifications, then compile & export the class files back to a jar.

You can either rebuild all the classes, or just the ones you've modified.

Which IDE are you using?
