It's actually rather fast: create the new scheduler code newCode, go to 
rdlibrary, select all carts having oldCode, click edit and assign them 
the new code.

About dayparting:
the only use i have of dayparting _cuts_ is for specific IDs and for 
short daily and weekly shows that are either imported manually well in 
advance or imported "unattendedly" by a bot.
To "daypart" certain _carts_ without having them scheduled, my solution 
is to use (yet another) scheduler code; for example "not_before22h": 
then in the scheduler rules of all clocks where you dont want those 
carts scheduled, set "max in a row" 0.

About the scheduler breaking rules:
(the exact way the scheduler works is still a bit obscure to me, so all 
this might be wild guesses)
it seems to me that your "min. wait" values are too high.
I remember reading 'somewhere' that the artist separation and min wait 
rules are the first to be broken in case the scheduler has a shortage of 
tracks.

Hope it helps.
