There is none. You don't have access to modify static PDF content from JavaScript.

The Redaction tool in Acrobat professional and JavaScript can be used to repace static text. But it is very limited . The text to replace needs to be close the size of the repacement text.

The Enfocus Pitstop plugin have a powerful automation tool for searching-replacing text in the layout.

You can try it for free :
