I think saying "just edit this script" is a bit optimistic. pt_TextEdit does allow you to save text styles as presets and apply them to other text layers, but it sounds like Craig is asking for a way to apply animation presets to certain layers.
I imagine that would need a different approach to either EffectSearch or TextEdit. Firstly you'd need some way of telling it the frame on which you want the anim preset to be applied so the keyframes are in the right place. You could probably do that with some options for how may frames before/after the layer in/out point you want it applied.
Then, there's no reason an ApplyAnimationPreset script should only work on text layers, but you'd need a way to specify which layers to apply to. It's unlikely you want a listbox that shows you every layer in your project, although you could have similar search options that let you specify which comps & layer types to search for. Alternatively it could just apply them to any selected layers.
I think there are already scripts that let you assign commonly used effects to buttons on a script palette, and ways to assign/use shortcuts to launch scripts, but nothing that lets you do this with animation presets.
