Ok so let's say I want every instance of the word "red" to be hyperlinked to the text anchor "Big Red" and Character Style 1 to be applied to the hyperlink format. How would I do that?

I know how to set text anchors and hyperlink text to it with a specific character style but I can't figure out how to do is on a large scale.

 

Can something like that be done with GREP? Is there some function in find/replace I'm unfamilar with? Can it even be done?

Sure. 

 

  1. Add the anchor to Big Red.
  2. Add the hyperlink to the anchor for the first occurrence of Red.
  3. Copy Red.
  4. Edit > Find/Change:
    1. Find: Red
    2. Change: ^c

 

^c means to paste the contents of the clipboard and maintain formatting.
