Is there anyway or form to edit JSON trees/nodes, and apply complex modifications in bulk, like editing certain nodes that have certain values and so on?
You mean live cntrl+h and changing them all?
More on the lines of “copy every node that has X type and change it to Y, then add it after the copied node”.
I don’t know and can’t find a way to script it.
jq should be good for that.
Alternatively python scripts.

By what is in the manual, doesn’t look like jq can copy/duplicate specific objects in an array.
So now I have to ask: How does the Python script system works? I mean, I don’t mind learning Python, but I don’t know what tools to use to run Python scripts over JSON files.
Python has a json library that operates on specific fields/entries. Basically, loads the jsons into a giant nested tree of arrays and dictionaries (in case of DDA, arrays of dictionaries).
Not sure how does it handle formatting, though.
