Re: How to programmatically rewrite (x + y/z) as (xz+ y)/z ?

With the Presentations package from my web site below ($50) this is easy. 
Just use FactorOut.

Needs["Presentations`Master`"]

x + y/z // FactorOut[1/z]
(y + x z)/z

x + y + (2*w)/z - p/3 + 10 // FactorOut[1/z]
(2 w + 10 z - (p z)/3 + x z + y z)/z
