In general,
please follow the instructions in the README-hacking
and HACKING files to prepare a patch for a new command.

See past examples of such patches here:
(Note all the files they modify.)

Since this will be a large contribution (i.e., more than 10 lines of
code), a copyright assignment will be required.
Please see here:

Before re-inventing the wheel, it is worth checking what other programs
exist for such functionality.
The basic "rename" program existed for some decades and allows regex renames.
Many other programs provide more advanced options (and even GUI),

A command that replicate existing functionality is less likely to be
accepted in gnu coreutils.
