Edit Power BI Dataset directly without connecting to Datasource


I am actually testing the possibility to connect AND edit a Power Bi dataset without connecting to the datasource. 


I set up a Power Bi report, added a new PowerApp and been able to see the data from 'PowerBIIntegration.Data'. So far so good.

Now I am searching for the ability to edit the (collection-)data and patch back it to the Power BI dataset.

In our use case for different reasons we cannot connect to the originated datasource (SAP) from the PowerApp ( I know there is a connector) and only want to interact with the Power Bi dataset. 


Does anyone has an idea if and how this would be possible? 


Thanks in advice,
