With emacs, I've never found the need to write such complicated
search/replaces.

It's simpler to record a keyboard macro, name it, save it and
assign a key to it.

For the change you make above:

 foo( type => 'bar', action => 'execute bar' );
to
 bar( action => 'execute bar' );

move to before foo, start recording.
zap to ', forward word, type (,
zap to a, type space, a, move down a line
go to beginning of line, end recording.
Then name the macro, save it,
assign key.
