it's pretty unlikely that someone can remotely write a script for you to drop into the default.php.
Maybe someone has that kind of line by line memory of that particular view file of that particular component.
seems like the best way to go about it would be:
if the "edit buttons" are turned on in the joomla interface and assigned to one of the module positions, then the HTML should be sent to the template. from your description it sounds like it's more a matter of the template not displaying the feature your looking for, than the component view not spitting it out.
if indeed that is the case, then you would need to:
1) use firebug or some such rendered html crawler to find the edit buttons and sniff out the css that is making them hidden.
in jQuery it would be something like:
