From a typopgrahic point of view the better solution is likely to not use
lines between cells in a table. There are a lot of ways to format tables
without lines.

(But due to the limitations in Scribus these are as hard as using lines.
But they are easier to read.)

From a working point of view it is likely better to do the table in a
spreadsheet program and then paste it into Scribus in some way.

Tables in Scribus are unfortunately not like the tables you are used to, a
table in Scribus is a group of individual text frames. This for example
means you cannot navigate the table with the TAB key, it is very hard to
select several cells at the same time, and as you have noticed there are no
really good way to apply formatting to a range of cells at the same time.
