You can do anything you want to your page but that doesn't necessarily mean you should repeat everything you see.
Just because someone has something on their page does not mean it is working. Smart webmasters know that competition will try to reverse engineer their pages. That led to some webmasters creating fake meta tags to trick their competition. My favorite fake meta tag is <meta tag pagerank="10">.
To protect yourself from these tricks you need to do research. What research have you done that makes you think Google is giving credit to anchor tags in the meta description?

Meta Description is the well crafted 'sound-bite' used to entice a person looking at the search results to click on your page; do anything else in there and just forget about traffic ... keep the description 'natural', 'understandable' and above all 'enticing' - the best descriptions use one sentence, with correct grammar and spelling.
Other meta tags used in the source code is another matter entirely ... <meta tag pagerank="10"> being a classic!
But to answer the OP: To alter meta descriptions if you are running a CMS like wordpress use a plugin like 'All In One SEO' etc. it allows you to alter individually the description meta tag for each page, but heed my earlier advice ...
Cause and effect in SEO needs careful study, because they rank does not mean that this is the cause ...
