I have a nice working CUPS installation with an original Kyocera ppd
file for my Kyocera FS-1000. This works fine as long as the input
does not contain postscript level 3.
How can I modify this ppd file such that CUPS invokes a filter
(ghostscript with some special parameters) which converts postscript
level 3 to postscript level 2.

Furthermore, is it possible to modify a ppd file such that a special
initialization strings is sent to the printer before printing?

Many thanks for a hint or pointer,
