If it was possible to change the spin at will of an entangled particle without
destroying the delicate entanglement with its twin then yes, I could indeed
communicate faster than light. If that were possible I could do even communicate
with the past. If that were possible I could send you a reply to your post before
you had even written it . If that were possible I could send a text file of all the
Harry Potter books to myself 10 years ago and then when J K Rowling got
around to actually writing them sue her for plagiarism. But it isn't so I can't.
