This gets kinda Rube Golberg-ish, but convert the incoming analog line to 
sip, route it through asterisk and have asterisk do its thing before 
converting it back to analog to send to the phone. Only problem is you get 
a lot of extra hardware involved in the mix to make it work. It will be a 
lot of expense and trouble, so you need to make sure that whatever part 
you want asterisk to play is worth that effort. Also, I wouldn't touch a 
fax line in this manner.

If you could give a bit more info on what you want asterisk to do, we 
could maybe give better advice on how to solve your problem.
