I tried to use the Data View but it says my field is Read Only. The field in question is a term store field. How can I edit these files without doing so one at a time?

it's impossible from out-of-the-box, but you can use 3-rd party solutions. For example from VirtoSoftware (link) , BambooSolutions, or SharePoint Boost.

Also you can upload multiple files with predefined properties (managed metadata supported) with Bulk File Upload.

You can't edit managed metadata columns in the datasheet view, but you can in SharePoint 2013.

For 2010, you can use SharePoint 2010 Batch Edit for bulk updating managed metadata using the SharePoint ribbon.
