Implement search and replace, spell check for Builder

Short Description

Search and Replace is an essential functionality for code editing. To implement this feature for Builder, we will improve the developer experience. First, I will implement gedit like search and replace functionality, then I will implement more advanced features allowing users to do search and replace across multiple files. A Spell Check plugin will also be implemented to help developers avoid common mistakes in code and documentation.
