You can try to install MacPorts and install the renameutils package:

renameutils @0.10.0 (sysutils)

renameutils is a set of programs designed to make renaming files faster and less cumbersome

If you want to do it without the command line, there is Automator. You can me a workflow with the rename Finder items action, and this allows you to (among other things) to substitute parts of a name with something else. You could apply this to to selected items or make it a folder action etc..
