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.
