the second one is not possible, but would be a tremendous and very 
welcome enhancement to the scripter!

for the first one:
- get the string as a python variable
- do some regexp magic on it to find out where the affected substrings are
- record their positions
- select each of the substrings ("scribus.selectText()")
- apply the formatting
