I remember someone showing me some thing like playing a chord and then like hammering on to a fret with one of the unused fingers to make another chord. I don't even know if that's it, all i know is that there is some way that people change the sound mid chord. What's that called?

Its just a more complex hammer on (and possibly pull off, dependent on whether or not that happens). I do not think it is a "name" as you would like. The reality is that it is like playing a chord, then hammering a note. Since the chord notes are still ringing, it sounds like another chord is being played. In reality this is not really the case.

You mean like playing a 6 string minor bar chord and then hammering down the major third?

Do you mean for example when you play an Asus2 and hammer the B string to get an Am? Like on Fade To Black.

Yeah, he's just hammering on another unused finger to make a new chord. Brian May does it in the We Will Rock You outro. He bars over the D, G and B on the 14th fret and then hammers on his second and third fingers to make a Bm7. That's probably the best example.
