Yes, an edit will put your question to the top of the "hot" list if it isn't at -5 at that point.
However, only edit your question if you have some clarification or improvement to make. There's no sense in editing just to bump it.
If you edit the question six times, it will automagically become a community wiki and you will be unable to earn rep from it.
