I have some bluetooth speakers in my house, which turns on the wifi lights I have when I walk in the room, but sometimes they fight for connection, the range is 30ft for both. If I could limit the range to say, 10 feet for my phone, they would be fine. Is there a file I can edit? Or an app perhaps?

I don't think that's possible, and I don't think you'd want to if you could.

Why not do so?

I also believe that's not possible. Unless you wrap your phone into aluminium foil

You do understand that Bluetooth is just a radio signal, and you understand how radio signals work, right? If it were even possible to weaken your BT signal to limit its range, you'd be weakening the signal, which you wouldn't want to do because it would be a weaker signal.
