Of that list of programs, I'd be inclined to use Pandoc. It permits
you to write filters in (embedded) Lua, which is a quick-to-learn
programming language. For example, this Lua one-liner converts a
string ("s") to add a line break after each existing line break:

s = string.gsub(s, "<BR>", "<BR>\n<BR>")

On writing Pandoc filters with Lua, see <>.
