Calling or hooking local functions of another addon?

I have been working for a long time on my fork of the addon DynamicCam, in which I made substantial adjustments regarding the "camera over shoulder offset". I would like to make my changes publicly avaibable to the community, but as my pull request has been ignored so far, all I can do is tell people to manually download my fork code from github. Because surely it would be inappropriate to just upload the entirety of my fork under my name with all the other author's work in it, right?

That's why I thought of offering my changes as a plugin to DynamicCam, but I am facing the obstacle that there are several local functions of DynamicCam's Core.lua file that I would need to call or alter (i.e. hook).

Is there any way at all to do this?

Or what are my other options?
