just use export in the code and change it in the inspector (right panel by default) in the editor:

export var _itemParam1 = 1
export var _itemParam2 = 2

I need to change the parameters through the code
and not through the inspector

Have you tried overriding the init virtual method:

func _init():
    export_param1 = value

and if you want to change these parameters from another script, then you need a reference to the item.
Say if you do var item = ITEM.instantiate()
then you can do item.export_param1 = value

and so on.
