Do you know how to override these settings from my .emacs file?

There are two ways: either

        (require 'vhdl-mode)

(when the ELisp file has a provide statement) to make GNU Emacs aware of this mode, its functions, and variables and then make your corrective settings, or use a hook. Like in

        (add-hook 'vhdl-mode-hook
            (lambda ()
            (setq ...)
            (message "vhdl-mode-hook applied")

which will be executed whenever vhdl-mode is being initiated for a buffer. Take care that no recursion occurs.

A third method can be to edit loadup.el or its local variant to load vhdl-mode.el when GNU Emacs is created. Then the require statement in ~/.emacs is not needed.

Should I go into my vhdl-mode.elc to make the changes, changes in the vhdl-mode.el file does not seem to have any effect?

It makes no sense to change the ELC files: it's derived from the EL file by byte-compiling it. And it's rather nasty binary. You have functions like byte-compile-file or batch-byte-compile, I think Lisp- mode allows to byte-compile the buffer you're just working in, and finally in dired-mode you can simply type B, dired-do-byte-compile. So you can edit vhdl-mode.el and just need to byte-compile it afterwards, after saving it.

And from this it makes no sense to attach an ELC file ...
