You almost certainly don't *need* to do this.  What is the actual
high-level task you're trying to achieve.

X509_STORE_CTX is used with X509_verify_cert():

to verify a certificate chain.  The "current_issuer" field is filled in
so it can be read by callbacks, setting it in user code makes little

Note that the X509_STORE_CTX structure is not opaque, and you can just
set its fields, but in this is case it is likely a bad idea to do that.
