Help with search and delete/add/modify script

Gurus,

I need to run a script on multiple XML files in different directories and do the following (the output can be redirected to create a new file)

1. Search a pattern like "abc.mno.xyz" in an XML file, once detected, the script should delete one line above and 3 lines below (including the line containing the pattern)

So the following pattern should just disappear from the text file on which I will run this script

<option>
<name>abc.mno.xyz</name>
<value>true</value>
</option>

2. Update the following fragment in the XML file

<options>
<option>
<name>addAllRoles</name>
<value>true</value>
</option>
</options>


to the following (it changes one of the value from true to false and adds an additional xml tag)

<options>
<option>
<name>addAllRoles</name>
<value>false</value>
</option>
<option>
<name>addRoles</name>
<value>false</value>
</option>
</options>
