Default how to (manually) add a stanza to /boot/grub/grub.cfg?

in various RH-based distros, i used to manually add a couple extra
stanzas to my grob config file to represent slightly different boot
options. that is, i'd add another stanza called, say, "noisy", that
would represent a standard boot except with more debugging info turned
on. so it would be the same kernel, just with slightly different
command-line options.

on RH-type systems, that was fine since one was free to hack the
grub config file. but what does one do in ubuntu, when the config
file clearly screams, "DON'T EDIT ME!". how does one get the same
effect via update-grub? thanks.
