I'm not clear what you are asking. There is no need to change any color. That's the point of using spot colors. Except for preview purposes, the colors can be whatever you want. Only the density matters. It's just a way of saying "For color X use ink from can Nr. Y". If you want to cover everything, all you need is a filled circle on a spot color channel in a multichannel document and generating a print file that has this channel as a separation.

@maryams87 – If I am understanding you correctly, you will be printing in colour as shown above (whether CMYK or spot), however, you then wish to create two additional spot channels for separations for UV embellishment, such as a matt or gloss overprint?

 

Please provide more detail about the output and embellishment process etc.

If both circle and text have the same embellishment, then they should be combined as you show.

 

If the circle was using one effect such as matte and the text another such as gloss, they would need to be separate spot channels. The text would need to "knock out" a white hole into the black circle.

 

You are best talking with your print service provider for their requirements.
