Large find and replace is best done in a texteditor like wordpad.

For that export to .gramps format, unextract the xml file in this file with eg 7zip or so, and then load the xml in your favourite ascii/unicode editor (on linux kate, gedit, kwrite).
An editor on unix allow regular expression search and replace, which can be really handy.

Anyway, for sources look for the <source> tag, and see how to replace.
I know there exist now dedicated xml editors, but I did not try that. Editing a text file will be quicker than editing records via a database interface as GRAMPS is.

However, carefull, only change your text, if you change xml tags Gramps will give problems on import.
