You need to write a new section to your aircraft.cfg modelling the differences the BBJ exhibits.

I dont know much about the BBJ but assume its a standard -700 NG with a lower payload and larger fuel tanks to get more range.

You can start at EASA website and get hold of the aircraft type certificate data sheet

https://www.easa.europa.eu/sites/defaul ... v%2018.pdf

Its pretty simple to do when you are just altering weights and fuel loads, but if the SimA 737 is like the 777, you might screw up the CG and trim settings. But I dont think this will be a major factor as the BBJ is just an empty 700!
