Insert
T C(GSO)
INSERT MAINT.TEST LIBRARY(SYS1.LPALIB) LID(TESTUSRA) PGM(ABC)
QQQQ / MAINT.TEST LAST CHANGED BY USERABC ON 01/24/20-14:37

The change command depends on if a field is multi-valued or not. For fields that are not multi-valued, like LIBRARY and LID, the change command is a one to one relationship meaning that what is specified in the LIBRARY or LID on the change command will replace what was there before:
T C(GSO) 
CHANGE MAINT.TEST LIBRARY(SYS1.LNKLIB)
QQQQ / MAINT.TEST LAST CHANGED BY USERABC ON 01/24/20-14:37     
                     LIBRARY(SYS1.LNKLIB) LID(TESTUSRA) PGM(ABC)

For fields that are multi-valued, like PGM, the values may be added, deleted, or replaced in the list.
