Keep the same FID

I read on the internet that the FID cannot change or be editted.

Basically I need to edit the polygons in a shapefile that i made. BUT all the polygons were first made in CAD one by one and appended to the shapefile in GIS. I need to edit some polygons without having their FID change.

The linework is something that requires a bit of accuracy in terms of angles and length. The lack of certain snapping options in GIS made me turn to AutoCAD to draft the polygons.

Is there a way to replace the whole polygon in the shapefile so that the FID stays the same?

Any suggestions would help. Thanks in advance
