You could kill the rectangle from writable dired, paste it into a helper
buffer, do your modifications there, kill the modified text as a
rectangle from there, and paste the rectangle back to wdired. You may
have to handle introduced trailing whitespace, however.
Other options are keyboard macros, dired-map-over-marks,
dired-do-rename-regexp - or you might like to use "multiple-cursors.el",
I guess it comes closest to your initial idea, AFAIR it support multiple
regions (one separate pseudo-region per line) and can run commands once
per every pseudo-region.
