Question 1. Try to separate the notion of a text editor from a mathematical
system such as Mathematica. The function ReplaceAll is defined by
"expr /. rules applies a rule or list of rules in an attempt to transform
each
subpart of an expression expr." If you look at your expression in FullForm
In[57]:=
FullForm[(4 a^3 b c K Pi Ro)/(15 r^3)]
Out[57]//FullForm=
Times[Rational[4,15],Power[a,3],b,c,K,Pi,Power[r,-3],Ro]
you'll see that no sub part of it is ever going to be substituted by m.
However, in the text editor context simply use Find and Replace.
Question 2. Use Simplify:
In[1]:=
Simplify[a^2 b c + a b c]
Out[1]=
a (1+a) b c
