I have met some folks into Wicca who believe that one should
not take a spell off of another person without the person's
request. Assuming your friend has requested help -- or that
you are an atypical Wiccan who will perform a curse removal
without specific request -- the best i can say is that
removing curses from others, in my tradition of folk magic
comes in two forms: either you work directly on the person
(who is called a client, whether or not he or she is paying
you, is a family member, or just a friend) or you work
indirectly for the client. 

The way you mentioned above -- adapting a spell for curse
removal from personal to other-directed is a good example of
the indirect method. It is often quite effective, especially
if you have the client's cooperation and have a magical link
donated by the client, such as a piece of hair, name-paper,
etc. Any good curse-breaking or uncrossing spell can work,
if applied this way. 

Another method of curse removal is more direct -- in my
tradition it can involve bathing or rubbing the client or
prescribing baths or teas to drink, or smoking them in an
herb like Aspand.

Any of the direct methods can also be done while at the same
time performing an indirect spell, such as the setting of
lights (candles) or working with magical link type objects. 

I personally prefer the direct type of spell, where the
client is given baths, rub-downs, and/or a tea to drink
because they become more involved in the work and it often
has a more positive and demonstrably rapid effect than if i
merely work for them indirectly. 

I have written a few web pages about such work and other
posters to alt.magick and alt.paranormal.spells.hexes.magic
have contributed spells of their own. The pages are free to
read, and most of them require few supplies beyond candles
and some herbs. Here are a few URLs that may help. They come
from various cultures and inlcude a number of different
methods to take off a jinx, curse, or evil eye, and to
clease oneself or a client. 

Spiritual Baths for Cleansing:
Aspand against the Evil Eye:
Rue against the Evil Eye:
Salt for Protection:
Black Hens and Hen Eggs:
Blessing Self or Client:
Uncrossing Self or Client:

Good luck to you.
