There is no such prepackaged tool, because we assume these are trivial
tasks which I'm sure you can chalk up yourself, for eg.:

find /var/abs -name $1 -exec grep ^pkgver=[a-zA-Z0-9].* {}/PKGBUILD \;
| sed 's/pkgver=//'

To check.

find /var/abs -name $1 -exec sed 's/^pkgver=.*/pkgver=3.4/' -i {}/PKGBUILD \;

To change.
