How to replace all string instances found by find+grep

Hello all
Im performing find + grep operation that looks like this :
find . -name "*.dsp" | xargs grep -on Project.lib | grep -v ':0'
and I like to add to this one liner the possibility to replace the string " Project.lib" that found ( more then once in file ) with "Example.lib"
how can I do that ?

ZGREP(1)						      General Commands Manual							  ZGREP(1)

zgrep - search possibly compressed files for a regular expression SYNOPSIS
zgrep [ grep_options ] [ -e ] pattern filename... DESCRIPTION
Zgrep invokes grep on compressed or gzipped files. These grep options will cause zgrep to terminate with an error code: (-[drRzZ]|--di*|--exc*|--inc*|--rec*|--nu*). All other options specified are passed directly to grep. If no file is specified, then the standard input is decompressed if necessary and fed to grep. Otherwise the given files are uncompressed if necessary and fed to grep. If the GREP environment variable is set, zgrep uses it as the grep program to be invoked. EXIT CODE
2 - An option that is not supported was specified. AUTHOR
