The below code asks the user to enter the values for f(5), f(6) and f(8) and inserts the user input in the vector f at the respective positions(i.e. 5,6, and 8):
arr=[5 6 8];
for i=1:length(arr)
prompt = ['f(' num2str(arr(i)) '):'];
f(arr(i)) = input(prompt);

"but it seems like it doesn't support a negative index any way to make it possible? "
You are confusing data with code. Better to keep them separate and iterate over indices, not over (meta-)data:
X = [5,6,8];
Y = nan(size(X));
for k = 1:numel(X)
Y(k) = input("f("+k+")");
More robust would be to use INPUT's 's' option and STR2DOUBLE.
