```will this do it for you:

> x <- c(2.2, 2.4, 2.6, 3.2, 3.4, 3.6)
> # get integer part
> x.i <- as.integer(x)
> # get fractional part
> x.f <- (x * 10) %% 10
> # new result
> result <- x.i + ifelse(x.f == 2
+                     , .25
+                     , ifelse(x.f == 4
+                         , .5
+                         , .75
+                         )
+                     )
> result
[1] 2.25 2.50 2.75 3.25 3.50 3.75
