I know of the testnet Bitcoin provides, but is there any framework or simulator of the Bitcoin network which I can use to test on my local machine? I would like to edit parts of the code and simulate the responses of the real network without actually interacting with it.

There is a section in the Bitcoin Developer Guide on Testing Applications. The section you are interested in is likely to be Regtest.
