Hey alvaro_letelier,

you can add the Ambient Occlusion channel and paint with it.

To be more precise : when you add an ambient occlusion channel in your texture set, by default any layer that you create after will be in multiply mode. Change the mode to normal instead and you will be able to overwrite some part of the texture.

To access the blending mode of the ambient occlusion channel, use the dropdown menu at the top left of the layer stack.
Don't forget your log file. It can be exported from the Help menu of the software.
