It is always risky to drill any version of vitreous. Diamond hole saw
with water and a carborundum grit hole saw with a carbide lead bit are
about the only things I would attempt it with. Once you're through the
glaze, it's a piece of cake.
I assume you are talking about adding a faucet or soap dispenser or similar.

Seen it done. The guy mounted it in a wood support so he could use
his drill press. He used a special bit, bottom of it was flat except
for grooves going from the center out to the edge. It doesnt drill
through it it grinds through using abrasive powder and water. Drill
turned real slow, maybe 30 rpm or so, you could easily count the
turns. Looked like all was OK but he told me later on it cracked after
he installed it. I think it took a month or two for it to break.

Take it out to the curb on trash day or put it on Craigslist.
Next, find one with the features you want and install it.
It is possible to cut a hole in such materials with a high pressure
water jet machine. The $100/hr. (or more) machine time fee might bend
your budget, though.
