Although there are plenty of plugins available to perform any kind of activity in WordPress. But it is always better to use less plugin and if possible try to achieve the requirement by changing the code only. Never touch the core genesis framework files, simply change the child theme files and you can easily achieve the requirement. There are many useful tutorials available here to tweak your Genesis child theme.
