You may use the Refactoring Browser from OmniBrowser to do that.

1) Open a scoped browser, i.e. select a method, contextual menu -> 
Refactoring scope -> Selection (you may filter by multiple methods, 
categories, classes or packages depending your current selection in OB)
2) In the new browser window, select method, contextual menu -> Refactor 
-> Source Regex...

For example given the method:

	| var1 var2 var3 var4 |
	var3 := #symbol1.
	var4 := 'cadena1'.
	var1 := 'my first testString'.
	var2 := 'my second testString'.
	^ var1 foobar , var2 foobar

a regex refactoring replacing #symbol1 with 'symbol1' and 'testString' 
with 'myString' could be:

ORSourceRegexRefactoring new
	"Example 1: Replace symbols with strings"
	replace: '#(\w+)' with: '''$1''' ignoreCase: false;
	"Example 2: Replace occurrences of a string with another string"
	replace: '#*testString' with: 'myString';

3) Open menu on the refactoring source code, click Accept (DO NOT use 
the keyboard commands)
4) A new browser window will let you accept, filter, or cancel the 

If you want to modify message patterns/nodes, use the Refactor -> 
Rewrite code... templates. Take a look at: 
http://st-www.cs.illinois.edu/users/brant/Refactory/Rewrite.html to 
learn about the rewrite rules.
Hope it helps.
