You change the configuration for sshd in /etc/ssh/sshd_config,
un-commenting and changing the line that says '#Port 22'.  You
will probably find that you also want to change ~/.ssh/config
files (on other hosts) to add an entry for the host where you
are running sshd on port 23.

You should not change /etc/services for this.
