Help me in awk or sed in UNIX

I have a fixed length file that looks like
Code:
a@ a00 a00000 a00 a000000            a00  a0000   a0000     a00000000   a01
a@ a1 a2 a11 a22 a12 a13 a44 a45                     a54      a65    a76  a77
a@    a1 a3 a6    a7     a9      a8     a2  a7          a8    a8      a9   a0
b@ b00 b00000 b00 b000000            b00  b0000   b0000     b00000000   b01
b@ b1 b2 b11 b22 b12 b13 b44 b45                     b54      b65    b76  b77
b@    b1 b3 b6    b7     b9      b8     b2  b7          b8    b8      b9   b0
c@ c00 c00000 c00 c000000            c00  c0000   c0000     c00000000   c01
c@ c1 c2 c11 c22 c12 c13 c44 c45                     c54      c65    c76  c77
c@    c1 c3 c6    c7     c9      c8     c2  c7          c8    c8      c9   c0
d@ d00 d00000 d00 d000000            d00  d0000   d0000     d00000000   d01
d@ d1 d2 d11 d22 d12 d13 d44 d45                     d54      d65    d76  d77
d@    d1 d3 d6    d7     d9      d8     d2  d7          d8    d8      d9   d0

In this file , 3 consecutive lines look same for a@,b@,c@ d@
If in the 2nd column of 2nd row of every such segment contains (, then I have to append 'new' after the 5th column
of the 1st line of that segment such that the next word of the appended word stayed in the previous position.

Like if the c segment looks like [2nd column of 2nd row contains ')' ]
Code:
c@ c00 c00000 c00 c000000            c00  c0000   c0000     c00000000   c01
c@ c1 c( c11 c22 c12 c13 c44 c45                     c54      c65    c76  c77
c@    c1 c3 c6    c7     c9      c8     c2  c7          c8    c8      c9   c0

Then 5th column of the 1st line of that segment should look like
Code:
c@ c00 c00000 c00 c000000new         c00  c0000   c0000     c00000000   c01

So new file should look like
Code:
a@ a00 a00000 a00 a000000            a00  a0000   a0000     a00000000   a01
a@ a1 a2 a11 a22 a12 a13 a44 a45                     a54      a65    a76  a77
a@    a1 a3 a6    a7     a9      a8     a2  a7          a8    a8      a9   a0
b@ b00 b00000 b00 b000000            b00  b0000   b0000     b00000000   b01
b@ b1 b2 b11 b22 b12 b13 b44 b45                     b54      b65    b76  b77
b@    b1 b3 b6    b7     b9      b8     b2  b7          b8    b8      b9   b0
c@ c00 c00000 c00 c000000new         c00  c0000   c0000     c00000000   c01
c@ c1 c( c11 c22 c12 c13 c44 c45                     c54      c65    c76  c77
c@    c1 c3 c6    c7     c9      c8     c2  c7          c8    c8      c9   c0
d@ d00 d00000 d00 d000000            d00  d0000   d0000     d00000000   d01
d@ d1 d2 d11 d22 d12 d13 d44 d45                     d54      d65    d76  d77
d@    d1 d3 d6    d7     d9      d8     d2  d7          d8    d8      d9   d0

Please let me know if I can do the change using awk or sed
