The photon cross-sections used in FLUKA are taken from the EPDL97
evaluated library: D.E. Cullen, J.H. Hubbell, L. Kissel, UCRL-LR-50400.
(I assume you meant the electromagnetic cross sections, not the
photonuclear ones).
There is no way to change them. You can only change the thresholds
of various effects: see in the manual command EMFCUT with SDUM = PHOT-THR
and PHO2-THR
