This is the most easy part: Just use setVar() with the variable name and its new value. An optional third boolean parameter tells if the value should be appended to the existing value (defaults to false).

<?php
$this->setVar('AUTHOR_NAME', 'Author 1');
?>

Variables set influence all variables in the template, no matter if they are defined within a block or not.
