I'm going to explain how uTorrent works.
In the downloads list, if I select only one download and I click with right button this menu appears:

If I click in 'Properties' this window is displayed:

In this window you can change many things of this download, including add/edit/delete trackers.
Now if we take a look at the trackers information in the lower panel, these are the options:

if I click in 'Add trackers...' the previous window appears again so I can add/edit/delete trackers. There are no options to 'Add one tracker' or 'Copy trackers', you can do this in the textarea.

Until now, I talked about select only one torrent in the downloads list. If I select several torrents in the list and click the 'Properties' option:

The previous window appears again but this time the trackers list is empty:

If I change something in this window (including trackers), this options are applied to all selected downloads, so you can change the trackers of all your downloads at the same time.
Just for completion, this is the other tab in this window:

I would love if someone implements something like that in qBittorrent. Now there are things that can't be changed simultaneously in several torrents. There are also things to do in several steps, for example, if you want to adjust the upload & download limits and trackers of one torrent you have to do it in many different windows, thus it is all done in the same window.
I don't have enough knowledge about c++/qt to do this, but the web version will be easy for me.

Any news on this? It would be a super nice feature. I run qBittorrent on a gaming (Windows) machine and don't have Python installed to write a quick script to parse the bencoded metadata and rewrite the torrent files en masse. I'm sure lots of users wouldn't want to do that from a UX perspective anyway.

Not yet. I think this is not going to happen for a while...
