Changing text alignment, (horizontal or vertical), in a large number of pre-existing text frames all at once can be done with a script, but I'm no script writer, so I can't help you with that directly. A visit to Adobe's InDesign Scripting User Forum could help:

In the absence of a script, Object Styles could help. Create an object style based on a frame you already changed, and assign a keyboard shortcut. You'll still have to trudge through selecting and applying, but an Object Style will minimize the steps.

All of the vim with none of that annoying vigor.
