The verilog language itself is very large. I would avoid trying to parse
the whole language unless you can steal a good grammar from someone. You
would be better off writing a scanning kind of tool in Perl to do what you
want. The problem is that unless you are only going to handle simple
sub-expressions of the ternary, it could get ugly very fast. And you'll
need something that can create new symbols which won't collide with any
currently in your Verilog model because if/then statements must have a
valid left-hand-side which is the target of an assignment. To be more
specific would be difficult without knowing how complex the Verilog source
is that you're trying to transform.
