I want to edit some outputs such as the content or description fields.

Do I have to make a custom rss feed just to change one thing?

If you want to change the content shown in a feed, use the the_content_feed filter:

add_filter( 'the_content_feed', function ( $content, $feed_type ) {
    $post_id = get_the_ID();

    if ( $feed_type === 'atom' )
         $content = 'something else';
         $content = wp_trim_words( $content, 30 );

    return $content;
}, 10, 2 );

The above is purely an example of some of the (bizarre) things you might want to do.
