Can I force making changes to the value of variables not paying attention to require statement? For example, I have the next code:

contract_runs = contract_runs + 1;
success = exchange();
require(success);

I want changes initiated by the exchange function to be applied only if success is true but increase contract_runs regardless of the value of this variable.

You could use try/catch if exchange is in another contract.

try anotherContract.exchange() {
  // succeeded
}
catch (bytes memory err) {
  // failed
}

If it is in the same contract you could use this.exchange() just be aware that it will change msg.sender and requires exchange to be public or external.
