Maybe you know some kind of plugin or online service that will be able to delete automatically certain text from text files?

Delete for example a paragraph after a certain keyword in 100 text files at once...

    Basically you need someone to write you a script to do it, in any programming language really. I used to do that sort of thing in AWK (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AWK). If you're not really a programmer you will probably have to ask/pay someone to do it for you, I doubt you will find a service or tool that will specifically do what you want without some sort of knowledge of the process behind it. You could possibly even do it in MS Word with wildcard search and replace, but again, 'regular expressions' (special search/replace syntax) is not most people's cup of tea.

    I use Crimson Editor for it's built in Macro Function, but I'm not sure it could handle multiple files.

    You could post a job on a freelancer site and get bids. I've been developing software since the late 90s. What you want to do is pretty simple. You should be able to find a programmer to do it inexpensively.
