Is there a code capable of modifying the entry filters of a view?
Edit** Not trying to create a new filter with new logic, just adding one more filter of the already existing ones to the view via php

What else are you trying to do?  The filters are pretty robust as they stand.

Enrico, use the frm_view_order filter. You have access to the entire SQL query Formidable creates to return pertinent entry IDs. You can modify the filters, the SELECT statement, the LEFT JOINS, etc. I use this filter a lot to override Formidable's query to use my own queries to improve performance.

This is the hook description:
"This hook will only apply to filters you have added in the "Advanced Settings" section of your View"

However in the "Advanced Settings" section of your View i see no filters option, and the funztion code is not being executed, do you have any idea why this is the case?
