Looks like you've moved from handling your own developers' habits to a
more generic question of how many ways can source be edited on the i.

If you were to hire me to help for a week or two, I'd bring my laptop
with a copy of Notepad++ on it. No licence issues with my RDP on your
IBM i, etc. I have a script that uses FTP to download a source member
to my laptop, invoke Notepad++ and then FTP it back up to your machine.

In a pinch, QSH and sed can also be used to, er, modify source.
sed s/TESTLIB/PRODLIB/ </qsys.lib/buck.lib/qrpglesrc.file/sed.mbr
/qsys.lib/buck.lib/qrpglesrc.file/sed1.mbr Let's say you had a pile of
these things you wanted to do. Instead of manually editing each one,
wrap the lot in a QSH script file and automate the process. Of course,
something similar could be done with a simple RPG program and a CL wrapper.
