Download all three parts. In the documentation chapter 7 tells you how to rename static placeables with it.

Sure but moneo pays off when searching through hundreds / thousands of instances. Well worth investing a few hours to learn it. i've lost track of the number of times I've used it to do "the impossible".

You can also use the "Update Instance" toolset feature.

This will however update everything not just name. If the placeables have different appearance/tag in different areas this won't help you.

Also, updating instances across all areas is very, very slow compared with moneo.
