Is there a way to take a file name, pull parts of it that aren't constant, and make a new file name for it?
I.E. - "110. Wonderwall (metal cover by Leo Moracchioli).mp3" - to - "Leo - Wonderwall (Metal Cover).mp3"
and - "130. Ace of Spades (metal cover by Leo Moracchioli).mp3" - to the same style of "Leo - Ace of Spades (Metal Cover).mp3"

Try Replace method with Regular Expression:
... replace: ^\d*\. (.*) \((.*) by (\w*).*
... with: \3 - \1 (\2)

That does what you want but leaves "metal cover" all lower case.

If all your filenames contain "metal cover" then you can use the "Replace with:" string:
\3 - \1 (Metal Cover)

TO:

You can also accomplish this in a single Script method...

Pre batch script:

String.prototype.toTitleCase = function() {
return this.replace(/\w\S*/g, function(txt){
return txt.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + txt.substr(1).toLowerCase();
});
}
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Main script:

str = item.name.replace(/^\d*\. .* \((.*) by \w*.*/,"$1").toTitleCase();
return item.name.replace(/^\d*\. (.*) \(.* by (\w*).*/,"$2 - $1 (" + str + ")");
