It would be great to get to have the option (find, find and replace) to get to search, find and replace a text within a file in the local (server) side.

I support this, it's needed!
If filezilla learns to search text into files in the local/server, I will remove total commander absolutely :)

FileZilla is a file transfer application, not a text manipulation application. For editing local/remote files, FileZilla uses a user-selected editor. There is no way to search in remote files except for downloading them all.

Use SSH and grep or some other facility for that.
