Cooling. Where to edit?

Hello,
I have an equation for cooling that has the form:

u_new = u_eq + (u - u_eq)*exp( -dt / t_cooling) ,

where u_new is the new internal energy, u_eq is an equilibrium energy, u is the current internal energy, t_cooling is the cooling time, and dt is the timestep.
I believe I can convert between the entrophy (which is stored in SphP[i].Entropy) and internal energy u. All other values I can calculate from the stored values of density, etc.
My question are: where should I write this equation in Gadget2? I have trouble figuring out which is the correct place to edit.
Also, for the time step dt, what should I use? Is it int P[i].Ti_endstep - P[i].Ti_begstep, or is it All.TimeStep?

Thank you for your help
