If you want some script, try googling it first (or looking on creativecrash). Chances are, someone's already made it.
Asking if someone can write it for you (AND look into how Max is doing it first) is like asking "can anyone make me a cg car that works like the one in Batman Begins? It would be helpful".

But seriously, check out renameIt ( It doesn't do 'per type', but it does a lot of other things. Very handy and is useful when rigging (reordering attributes in the channel box).
