Subject: Re: How do I get wildcards to work in Replace?

No. The wildcard strings only work on Finds; there isn't any way to save
existing text into a buffer. Someone adept at FrameScript or the FDK
might be able to
come up with something, but...

In your particular example situation though, you can easily work
around the limitation by searching and replacing for individual
straight quotes and replacing them with smart quotes.
