RE: string search
It's probably feasible to do this in XSLT 2.0 using regular expressions, assuming you can specify the problem more precisely - or develop the regular expressions incrementally by trial and error over a range of source files that are representative of the whole collection you need to process. (If you can't specify the problem more precisely, then a different technology isn't going to help.) Doing it with XSLT 1.0 is likely to be more difficult.
