As far as a find and replace tool is concerned, most of us here prefer using some tool such as FAR or BkReplacem as they offer more features to help in this kind of scenario. The simple answer is however that these tools, as indeed does the inbuilt tool, bases it's search on the HTML. Therefore if there are specific instances of HTML strings you will have to analyse carefully them before you replace anything. It sounds like you are already some down down this line. Take a backup of your project and test out your theory.
As far as your map file question is concerned, you can safely reimport your map file PROVIDED that no changes have been made to the mapids in the meantime. Personally I wouldn't do this unless you are 100% sure of this. If it is a case of having 100s of topics that are not mapped and never have been but could be, I'd just create a new map file and map away.
Are you using RoboHelp HTML? IF so, ampersand (&) is a special character that is represented by "&" (minus quotes) in HTML. Did you try searching for "Reviews & Performance" (minus quotes)?
Another issue is that the RH tool won't cross multiple lines in its search, whereas FAR does.
