Talking sed and rename text in file

I need a help with sed and renaming the text in file, so I'd be very pleased if anyone can help me with that.

Let's say we have this one:

First of all, I'd like to remove
quote tags.
Second, where is
[b]nickname presents: 

[b]cober presents: 
[nickname changed to cober]

Third, also want to be removed this line
and instead of that, I'd want to put my own link, as example
Fourth, there we have
which are useless, so I'd need to remove that one like as up there.

And, finally we have something like:
This message has been hidden
 some text which i want to be removed  
I'd like here to remove complete text.

I'd very appreciate any help related to this post, hope there is no much work, otherwise I can also pay someone to make this for me.

Thanks again!!!
