What do I need to do to be able to edit links in an existing gif file. I have been asked to changed to wording that is displayed in gif along with the links?

Do you mean that the text is part of the image? If so, you need an image editor like Photoshop or its ilk.

"The Gimp" is the premier image editing application that runs on Linux.

Personally I like ImageJ for these purposes. It's written in Java, so it runs wherever I need it.
