A quick question: is editing map data using the find / replace function of a program like Notepad ++ safe?
(For example to replace the name of an actor in messages or to replace all occurrences of a common event with another)

yes and no

if done correctly it would be save, but it is not easy to do everything correctly.

For example replacing a name in messages should be save - although not needed for actors, because you can already use text codes for actor name placeholders, that is a better method.
Changing IDs can become much more critical and will require more care to make sure it is done correctly.

only try this with a lot of backups to correct mistakes.

Reworking the art for the 'special busts' in important game dialogue. Potentially replacing the more 'dead-on' look of the original:

Just got back from work... I got to recommend a dish I liked to a group of senior ladies, and they said they'd order it for dessert! What was it? CHURROS! It's one of my favorite desserts at my workplace.
What's your favorite dessert? I'll eat any pastry with cinnamon and sugar, but especially churros. And then there's chocolate... omg, so good!
