This is done using SetFile in the OS X Developer tools. E.g.:

$ which SetFile
$ SetFile -t TEXT -c ttxt test1.c
$ GetFileInfo test1.c
file: "/Users/toby/test1.c"
type: "TEXT"
creator: "ttxt"
attributes: avbstclinmedz

toby-pbg4:~ toby$ SetFile
Usage: SetFile [option...] file...

    -a attributes     # attributes (lowercase = 0, uppercase = 1)*
    -c creator        # file creator
    -d date           # creation date (mm/dd/[yy]yy [hh:mm[:ss] [AM |
    -m date           # modification date (mm/dd/[yy]yy [hh:mm[:ss]
[AM | PM]])*
        -P                                # perform action on symlink
instead of following it
    -t type           # file type


There are other 'classic' type tools available including Rez/DeRez resource compiler and decompiler. You can also look into using Macintosh Programmer's Workshop - the most powerful development system for classic MacOS - which runs quite happily in Classic.
